Availability

Dried Shiitake Mushrooms are available all year round.

Purchasing

For years, the odds were that you would only find Shiitake Mushrooms in the United States in their dried form. Today, the two forms can co-exist at retail where Dried Shiitake Mushrooms are normally the most economical option.

When purchasing Dried Shiitake Mushrooms, look for a well-sealed package without any visible moisture, or mold, inside.  Shop carefully when purchasing Dried Shiitake Mushrooms because there are many grades of Shiitakes.

In the United States, Shiitake Mushrooms are also sold as extracts and dietary supplements.

Storage

Dried Shiitake Mushrooms should be stored in an airtight container in a cool dark place such as a cabinet or pantry. Stored this way they can last up to a year, maybe two. They can last even longer if they are dehydrated and then frozen. Another option would be to cook them first and then freeze them. Don’t forget that Dried Mushrooms will need to be Rehydrated before use.

Portion Size

1-2 oz of Dried Shiitake Mushroom per person.
