  • About

    Wood Ear 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.

    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 (see How to Use dropdown menu).
