About Hen of the Wood mushrooms
Hen of the Wood Mushrooms have many names. They're also known as Maitake mushrooms, sheep's head, ram's head, and Kumotake. These mushrooms have been well-known in Asia for years, but in North America, they're just now gaining popularity. They differ from other mushrooms because they don't have gills on the bottoms of their caps. Instead, they have pores through which they release their spores to reproduce. They're known as a "bracket fungus," which means they typically grow near trees.
Their shape inspired the name "Hen of the Wood," and they grow in clusters at the bottoms of hardwood trees. Their brown caps are flat with white edges and somewhat resemble the ruffled feathers of a sitting hen. Their uses in cooking are versatile, and they provide an earthy aroma and unique texture to your dishes.
