Maitake is commonly referred to as 'Hen of the Woods' because the petals resemble plumage. This delicious morsel is very high in protein (27%), contains 15 amino acids and is being studied for its positive effect on the immune system. A favorite on our farm, the Maitake takes on a nutty flavor when sauteed. Delicious paired with chicken, rice and pasta, we use it in everything. TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK, TRY THE MAITAKE LEAF, IT IS AWESOME!
