Before cooking fresh honey fungus we clean, we wash and dry.


Honey fungus thrown into the cold water to provide sufficient water to the mushrooms were completely covered it. Honey fungus simmer for 60 minutes. Time start to count from the moment of boiling water. In the event of doubt as to the species of mushrooms cooked replace the water during cooking (1-2 times) or give up their consumption! If we do not have any doubt, just replace the water once. When cooking, we take off the foam. At the end of the cooking water with salt. For flavor you can add pepper, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, marjoram, bay leaf. Cook covered. Cooked mushrooms are soft and delicate.


After cooking honey fungus drain off and dry.


Honey fungus may be a treat or added to other dishes (groats, rice or vegetables). They can also be very good main ingredient of mushroom soup, sauce or marinade.

Bon appétit!
