Discover Japanese culinary excellence with our 3-Pack Set of All-Natural Additive-Free Dried Whole Wood Ear Mushrooms from Japan called "Kikurage". Also known as "Cloud Ear Fungus" or "Black Fungus". Immerse yourself in the rich flavors and impeccable quality of kikurage mushrooms, renowned for their thick meat, delightful texture, and exceptional taste. Sourced from a specially designed greenhouse, this kikurage is cultivated with meticulous attention to detail, where humidity, temperature, and carbon dioxide levels are maintained 24 hours a day. The mycorrhizal medium (the base used to grow fungus), a natural blend of sawdust and rice bran, contributes to the mushrooms' exceptional taste.
When rehydrated with water, these mushrooms expand in size by a factor of about 8, becoming plump and crunchy. Enjoy the versatility of kikurage in a myriad of dishes, including miso soup, salads, soups, hot pot dishes, and more. Packed with essential nutrients such as vitamin D, dietary fiber, calcium, and iron, our kikurage mushrooms not only elevate your dishes but also contribute to a health-conscious lifestyle.
This product is a whole type, so you can cut it into any size you like according to your needs. We also offer a pre-sliced variety here.
✔ No use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or food additives of chemical origin.
