How do you use funky mushrooms? Editor Sam Weiss-Hills picked up these hen of the woods and shiitake 'shrooms at her farmers market recently and wants to know how to use them beyond just sautéing and roasting.

Pickle them! Herbs, garlic, apple cider vinegar, sugar, salt

A very simple recipe! Slice large mushrooms like shiitake to make them into more or less into same sizes, place them in a large aluminum foil, season with sake, shoyu sauce, sliced scallions, pepper, and a slice of butter, sesame oil or olive oil depending on your taste. Wrap the foil tightly so no liquid leaks and put it in an oven toaster for about 15 min . When done, tear the top part of foil so the tasteful soup won't be wasted! Add white rice !

I think they would be delicious thinly sliced in a ceviche-style salad

If they're fragrant and strongly flavored, make an umami salt by dehydrating them, then pulverizing in processor with salt and dried herbs like thyme or sage.

Both are excellent in tempura!

Shiitakes are also fabulous sliced thin and sautéed in butter and garlic then added to anything noodley - ramen, stirfry, and cold sesame noodles are my favorites.

Excellent in savory crepes (maybe with a lil bechamel), or seared and served with fresh snipped chives on top of savory French toast!
