Maitake mushrooms are a good source of dietary fiber and vitamin B2, also know as riboflavin.
How to pick and store
Select maitake mushrooms that are firm to the touch and not too spread out, wilted or drying on the edges. Refrigerate in a vegetable storage container and consume within 3 to 4 days.
These mushrooms can be prepared in many ways, including as ingredients in soups, simmered dishes and for deep-frying. Maitake mushrooms are an essential ingredient in “Kiritanpo”, a popular traditional food of Akita prefecture in the Tohoku region of Japan.
