3 - 5 days
Shiitake are packed with fiber, selenium, manganese, copper, protein, iron, and vitamin D.
how to store
Keep your shiitake mushrooms in the fridge, inside the wax paper bag. They'll keep fresh for about 3 - 5 days.
Pro Tip → Store mushrooms towards the top of the fridge. Avoid the veggie drawer, it's often too cold for them!
If you don't plan on eating them within the 3-day window, we recommend:
Cooking then storing in the freezer.
Drying in a dehydrator.
Drying in the oven at its lowest setting for 2 hours. Flip them halfway through.
Pro Tip → Dried mushrooms can be rehydrated by soaking in warm water for 20 minutes or by tossing them in a simmering soup!
how to PREP
We recommend cutting off the tougher stems to cook separately but it’s not a hard rule! Fresh shiitake should be stored in a slightly damp towel in the fridge until you’re ready to use them.
They can keep fresh for up to a week (Using before 3 -5 days is best). If they dry out, you can always rehydrate them by soaking them in warm water.
