Shiitake Mushroom Log

Lentinula edodes

Originating in Japan and China, Shiitake mushrooms (lentinula edodes) are an increasingly sought after ingredient in modern cuisine and are readily available in supermarkets. However virtually all of these mushrooms are mass produced indoors and taste very bland compared to those which are naturally grown outdoors.

Growing mushrooms just got even easier with our new mushroom logs. You don’t need to find and drill your own log - we will supply you with a log that has already been ‘inoculated’ with the shiitake mushroom mycelium or spawn.

Culinary note: Shiitake mushrooms are delicious fried in butter and a little garlic, then mixed into scrambled eggs.
