Maitake (Grifola frondosa) is a polypore fungus (like Reishi and Turkey Tail) with a feathery appearance, an earthy, umami, peppery flavour and a crisp texture leading to a satisfyingly crunchy bite after cooking. This texture makes them great for pizza topping, baking/roasting or sautéing to make mushroom chips or crumble for soups, stews, stir-fry, pasta, potato, salad, rice or noodle dishes. Try crumbling Maitake on baked potatoes or perogies! Maitake is regarded as a potent folk-medicinal mushroom, promoting heart health. managing T2 Diabetes symptoms, supporting the immune system, reducing inflammation and even treating cancer. Scientific studies have not yet concluded its effectiveness in human trials, but it was once worth its weight in silver in feudal Japan....
