Dried Wood Ear Mushrooms
Woodear mushrooms (Auricularia Polytricha) are cultivated all over the world but grown for the commercial dry market almost exclusively in China. They are thought to look like ears growing out of trees, hence the name. This mushroom has other names such as tree ear and black fungus. It is often confused with the cloud ear. Woodear mushrooms are believed by many to be good for the heart. When reconstituted, the brownish tan inner color blends with the black exterior color to create a singled colored brownish black mushroom. The woodear has a firm skin with a slightly crunchy texture and an earthy flavor.
Basic Preparation: To reconstitute, place desired amount into a bowl and cover with boiling water. Let soak for 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. One ounce dry reconstitutes to 3-4 ounces
