My mother's neighbor got me some of these at Costco and they are really good. Of course, I am a complete mushroom lunatic so it's easy for me to like them.

amazon.com

I think Costco might be the place to get them for the cost. There is such a price disparity among vendors. They used to be $12.99 for the 5.29 oz. bag, now $9.19 from Amazon. The Costco price is $4.99.

They are produced in Australia, not fried but they use a process called vacuum cooking, whatever that is.

Highly recommended by Jerry, 'shroom lover extraordinaire!

100 mg per serving.

I wish I could do this with the wild mushrooms we find. It would take some serious experimentation. We went out day before yesterday for an hour and brought home 8 lbs of Oyster mushrooms.

I'm a mushroom fan. I think it's the Vitamin D that's the draw for me. Thanks for that link. Never thought of getting any in that form.

100, Ron. 16 mushrooms per serving and they aren't the largest size.

That's great! I love hunting for wild ones.

Just a short story: There was a group who got together and bought 40some acres of woodland near the Thomas Jefferson homestead (Monticello) in Va. They cut loads of oak trees and cross stacked them, inoculated them with shiitake spore and grew them commercially. Sold loads of them in New York. After a while they were faced with logs that were spent and decided to sell. A school teacher bought the property and I found out about her. I was invited to come pick all the shiitake's I wanted and I had to give her half of what I picked. After awhile, her take became more like 20% as she liked me (there's no accounting for taste). I dried a lot of them and sold others to a produce supplier in the area.

I even brought some of the less worn out logs home and grew some in my backyard. To give a short story that turned out long an ending, she called me one day and said a forest fire burned her property and that was the end of the story.

~The End~

Nearly all commercially grown shiitake mushrooms are grown in wood chips. The log grown ones have a better flavor, according to me, but there is so much more involved in growing them that way; more labor intensive and way more expensive.

Thanks. We have a variety on Amazon.ca. I never knew they had such a thing.

My Great Grandfather use to pick and dry mushrooms in the forest in Manitoba. He passed away in 1973.

My aunts still do it.

Thanks. I am on a low sodium diet, as I retain water. So I have to be careful what I eat.

We have them at my supermarket, but they are expensive but only 2 mg of sodium per serving. I am sure Costco would be the better choice in Canada.
