- 75 g dehydrated shiitake mushrooms

- Rehydrate your shiitake mushrooms by steeping them in water (or if you were making ramen broth this is a great way to not waste your mushrooms). Steep for 15 minutes or until completely soft.

- Place your mushrooms into a container with the prickling liquid and store in your fridge for a few months.
