Question About Shitake Mushroom Colour
- SG Feb 10, 2002 11:58 PM
Just picked up a pack of dried shitake mushrooms from my local asian grocery store. I normally go for ones with black caps but the store was running a special on some very thick mainly white capped (with little blotches of black here and there) variety ($7 for a lb).
Is there a difference between the white cap and black cap shitake, is this a natural phenomenon or altered artifically ?
