Qing Yuan Mushrooms
Certified Organic Qing Yuan Mushrooms
Zenxin’s Organic Mushrooms come from the birthplace of mushroom cultivation ——Qingyuan County in north Fujian.
800 years ago, farmers started farming mushrooms here for the emperor. In Qingyuan, mushrooms are grown in the natural season of mushroom or naturally in winter only, organically in pristine forests without chemicals and sulphur treatment. Qingyuan Mushroom Culture System was named the Nationally Important Agricultural Heritage systems of China in 2014. These mushrooms are certified organic under Australian Organic Standards (NASAA) and accredited by IFOAM.
How to Prepare Mushrooms
Soak dried mushrooms in warm water for 20-30 minutes or until softened
If you are not in a rush, use the slow soak method- Soak dried mushrooms in room temperature water for 8 hours or more (as it can ‘lock’ more flavour and retain firm texture of mushrooms)
Gently squeeze each mushroom to remove as much water as possible
Rinse the mushrooms to remove any hidden, stubborn grits
Liquid used to soak mushrooms adds enormous flavour to your dish! Strain the liquid to remove unwanted grits before use
