Organic Dried Mushroom Bundle


Sourced from a family-operated mushroom farm in the high mountains of Yunlin, Taiwan, our dried shiitake and lion’s mane mushrooms are grown organically then dried over a longan wood fire, without any preservatives or additives. Get the mushroom duo and make a warming soup along with our Aged Preserved Radish, or combine the two mushrooms into a vegetarian version of Three Cup Chicken using the sauce formula from our recipe.

Shiitake mushrooms play a primary role in Taiwanese cuisine, adding characteristic earthy flavor to simple dishes like Braised Napa Cabbage 滷白菜 and Taiwanese Oil Rice 油飯. These medium and large Organic Dried Shiitake Mushrooms are grown on Formosan Sweet Gum logs, in the high mountains of Yunlin, Taiwan. The cooler weather and wide temperature swings between day and night create optimal conditions for developing potent flavor and a sturdy texture.

Lion’s mane mushrooms are valued by Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners for their health benefits, including aiding digestion and nourishing and strengthening the body. These Organic Dried Lion’s Mane Mushrooms are cultivated by hand in space bags in the high mountains of Yunlin, Taiwan. Because lion’s mane mushrooms are sensitive to heat and humidity, the cold climate of the high altitude area provides the perfect environment for their growth.

Tasting Notes and Usage

Deeply earthy and umami with a dense, meaty texture

For the best flavor and texture, soak in cool water for at least six hours and up to twenty-four hours. For an express soak, use warm water and soak for thirty minutes, or until thoroughly softened.

Use whole in braises, soups, and stocks (see our recipe for Shiitake Mushroom Stock 香菇高湯). Or slice and toss into stir fries. Also makes a great addition to congee.

Lion’s Mane:
Mildly sweet with a tender, slightly chewy texture resembling crab meat

Soak in water for ten minutes, squeeze dry, and change out the water. Repeat three to four times, then cook as desired.

Add them to soups and stocks for a flavorful boost (see how we made a vegetarian Aged Radish Soup using dried lion’s mane and our Preserved Aged Daikon). Or, batter and deep-fry them.

About Ying Ying Grange

Located in the high mountains of Yunlin in Central Taiwan—1300 meters above sea level—Ying Ying Grange 盈盈農圃 is run by husband-and-wife team Wu Ru-Ying 吳如瀅 and Chen An-Chiang 陳安獎. It is also one of the last mushroom farms in the region to continue the practice of log-growing mushrooms, which came to popularity during the Japanese colonial period. Ying Ying Grange produces both log-grown shiitake and space bag lion’s mane on their farm. Both are collected by hand the instant they are ready, then smoke-dried over a low-temperature longan wood fire, fueled by lumber from the pruning of fruit orchards.
