The medicine man behind the mushrooms stand was even more enchanting. The featured image on my post are these exact mushrooms I speak of. These mushrooms were way different than the ones at a conventional grocery store and even way beyond the one’s at the local health food store.These medicinal outdoor grown spring water fed mushrooms were lovingly cared for by the grower. They were so potent in aroma, so moist in texture and oh so rich in color I was so thrilled to take these home and make something special. I love spring and summer time because of the bounty at the grower’s markets. These mushrooms inspired me to dive deeper into the qualities and benefits of truly medicinal shiitake mushrooms. So let’s take a journey together and learn more about these potent fungi that bless the earth.
