Maitake has a rich woodsy taste, crisp texture, and an excellent aroma. Maitake are also known as Hen of the Woods, Dancing Mushroom, Grifola frondosa and sheepshead. This is a very popular mushroom. Sauté them in olive oil and a little butter, good in stew, spaghetti sauce, and in stir fry.
The bag weights are the minimum weight in the bag, which is usually incorrect. We package each order and weigh them on a certified scale so you are sure to get what you ordered. Usually 1 bag is 4 ounces.
There is alot of research on the benefits of maitake. Remember that supplements are not pure usually, you get fillers in them. It is always better to eat the fresh or dried mushrooms. They taste excellent.
Oregon Mushrooms has been sharing our passion for mushrooms with others via the Internet since our first eBay sale back in 1999. We started out smaller with a focus on high quality dried morel mushrooms but soon customers began asking after the availability of other types of mushrooms. As a result of this kind of demand, we've since expanded our high-quality inventory to offer a variety of dried and fresh seasonal and cultivated mushrooms as well as unique mushroom-related specialty and gift items, such as black truffle oil and white truffle oil and truffle butter and truffle sea salt. All of our products are GMO Free! We do not believe in selling anything that is genetically modified.
