Drying out mushrooms really intensifies their flavour and shiitake mushrooms are a brilliant way of adding a rich and deep umami flavour to soups, stews and broths. They are like little flavour bombs to have around the kitchen.
Soak them before use and always keep the soaking liquid to add into your food, just like you might add chicken stock.

Ingredients: 4-6cm Dried Shiitake Mushrooms (100%)
I bought these to include in a ramen, and they were very good. There's loads left in the packet, so these will do many more dishes. Good value.
Absolutely delighted with the dried Shiitake Mushrooms, they are well packaged, ensuring their condition, they retain their shape and flavour while cooking. All together a good buy.
