Shiitake Madness



After getting back from NYC yesterday we drove out to H Mart to pick up a few things. We actually finished that gallon of soy sauce we bought in the summer. Oy. While we were there we came across a 1 lb package of dried shiitake mushrooms for $8. Normally we buy the 8 oz packages (about $5 at H Mart) or if in a pinch, the 3 oz ones (about $4) they have at Safeway. So it seemed to make sense to buy the big bag, we use them a lot. But the sheer volume is a bit daunting. I put the container next to the Kitchenaid for reference. It's a huge amount of mushrooms, hundreds even.
