Sugimoto Japanese Dried Shiitake Koshin Mushrooms $18.95

Forest-grown shiitakes are slowly sprouted in low temperatures—the natural rain and fog of Japan yielding a deliciously firm texture.

Taking a traditional approach practiced in Japan for over 1,000 years, Sugimoto works with over 600 independent growers who cultivate their mushrooms sustainably on sawtooth oak logs, known for yielding a sweet and robust flavor.

Not sure how you’d use it?

We test everything we sell. Here’s how we’d use this.


Swap in these elegant slices for any recipe calling for dried mushrooms, or even fresh once rehydrated properly. Sautee them with your fat and aromatics of choice before tossing with long noodles like in our Korean-Style Noodle Soup with Shrimp. Or layer them onto warmed ciabatta with fresh mozzarella, pesto and sun-dried tomatoes after browning them in a pan for a take on a classic cypress sandwich. The rehydrated slices can also make a crunchy topping perfect for soups, salads and snacking—pat them dry, slice them up and fry in a skillet until crispy.

Kitchen Notes

These dried shiitakes have a shelf life of about one year. Before use, slowly rehydrate in water in the refrigerator the night before. Or in warm water the day of if you’re in a pinch.
