Chinese Ingredient: Dry Mushroom

Dry mushroom is a very common ingredient in Chinese cooking. It adds a distinct, smoky flavour and aroma to Chinese dishes.

• The dry mushroom itself is plain, but can obsorb the taste from the sauces. So it is often used for slow cooking such as stew or soup.

• Before cooking, use warm water to soak for half hour or until softened. I usually do this over night. Afterwards, squeeze out the excess water.

• Used for soup, cut it or use it as a whole. Used as seasoning, finely chopped and combined with meat or fish.
