Black mushrooms, also called shiitake mushrooms, are a staple ingredient in Chinese cuisine. The name “black” is a bit of a misnomer since the mushrooms can be light or dark brown, and even gray when dried. They are also frequently speckled. They are sold fresh but are more commonly purchased dried.
We have utilized the mushrooms for their health benefits in traditional Asian healing systems for centuries. Shiitake, when translated from Japanese, refers to the shii tree on which these mushrooms originally grew, while také means mushroom.

How to Cook With Black Mushrooms
Fresh and dried shiitakes need to be prepared differently before added to a recipe. Fresh mushrooms should be cleaned first, either by wiping the caps with a damp paper towel or quickly rinsing with cool water. The stems of fresh black mushrooms are very tough and chewy, so they need to be removed with a pairing knife. (Save the stems to make mushroom or vegetable stock.)trumpet mushrooms
Dried mushrooms need to be reconstituted before use, and there are a few different techniques to choose from. The most common is to soak the dried mushrooms in very hot water for about 20 minutes, but some cooks recommend soaking them for an hour or so. A few cooks, however, insist that the only proper way to soak them is in cold water overnight to produce the best results. No matter which technique you employ, consider using a weight of some sort, like a small plate, to keep the mushrooms submerged. Then strain the mushrooms through a sieve to remove any sand or dirt. Reserve the soaking liquid for broth, along with the stems of the mushrooms.
