A bunch of shiitake mushrooms sprouted during a cold December rain. Obviously they like the cold. Some of the mushroom logs are now two years old. For whatever reason, it has taken them some time to get started.

Over the weekend I was in Chapel Hill and spent an afternoon helping a friend prep logs for shitakes. Just like you she still gets little sprouts here and there though it’s past the season. There aren’t enough shrooms for her to take to the farmers’ market but I’m happy to see them as it’s amazing the amount of flavor they have when they are so fresh.
