How to Cook wood ear fungus:

  • Soak the fungus in warm water for 15-25 minutes. It will puff up to several times of its normal dry size.
  • Wash the fungus and trim the stem where it was attached to the wood of the tree
  • Cut the fungus into an appropriate shape and size if needed
  • Add the fungus to a dish near the end of stir-frying to keep the crunchy texture. Or add the fungus to soups at anytime.
