Wood Ear 黑木耳 mushrooms are a species of edible Auricularia Auricula fungus found worldwide. Known as 'Jelly Ear' or 'Mu Er', these are popular for adding texture to soups and stir-fry and absorbing flavours.
Our Mu Er is from the North East of China. This variety is thin and tender, typically fried with eggs. We recommend washing them in water, instead of soaking when using.
Wood Ear is usually black with no caps or stems - unlike most mushrooms. They are sometimes known as cloud ear, tree ear or black fungus and most commonly sold dried. Their crunchy texture and dark, velvety colour add an unusual element to even the most basic dish.
Dried Wood Ear Mushrooms are herbs which may assist with lowering cholesterol, blood clotting and contain anti-cancerous properties.
These are also naturally high in vitamins (B2, C, D), iron, selenium, zinc, copper, fibre and calcium.
They can be used in a number of culinary dishes.
Our herb range has been created for a variety of different health goals, for use in cooking recipes.
The Chinese herbs used are grown using the authentic DaoDI concept (non-sulphur treated) to retain the highest quality ingredient.
