What we offer:
Dried Shiitake Mushrooms
Shiitake mushrooms are an amazing food! Our shiitake mushrooms are grown on sawdust at our farm in Hadley, MA. They are sun-dried for at least 8 hours and finished slowly in low heat.
A strong, nutty shiitake flavor is great to add to any soup, risotto, curry, or vegetable dish. Shiitake does not lose its medicinal benefits even when cooked at temperatures up to 392 degrees Fahrenheit! Dried shiitake mushrooms can also be ground up into a powder and added to soups, food dishes, combined with flour, put in capsules, or smoothies! Shiitake has been used traditionally for thousands of years in China and Japan to increase stamina, circulation, immunity, and lower symptoms of arthritis, diabetes, high blood cholesterol, and gastric cancer.
According to Robert Rogers book Fungal Pharmacy shiitakes may contain anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-viral, blood sugar controlling cholesterol lowering, hypertension lowering, immune tonic, kidney tonic, and stress lowering properties.
Dried Chaga Mushroom
Our chaga is wild harvested from New England with special attention to not over harvest one area. As our favorite mushroom tea this mushroom is best prepared simmered overnight in a crock-pot or on a wood stove. Amazing with Chai spices or just on its own. The chunks can be frozen and reused tons of times until the water turns clear!
Also called “Diamond of the Forest”, Chaga may contain antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antitumor, antiviral, blood sugar controlling, immune tonic, and kidney tonic properties.
Many indigenous peoples, like the Cree, used chaga as incense and carried it as tinder for starting fires. Chaga was also placed in pipes to keep the tobacco or other herbs burning. Another use was burning it near specific meridian points to stimulate energy flow. The Gitksan of British Columbia used it to relieve rheumatic pain. In Western Siberia this Mushroom has been used to treat tuberculosis, liver disease, worms, stomach problems, ulcers, pain, gastritis, and more! Chaga mushrooms are a great reason to buy dried mushrooms from Fungi Ally.
Gram for gram chaga is one of the most powerful antioxidant in the world! To prepare chaga tea, simply throw a handful of chaga into a gallon of water, bring to a boil, and let it simmer for at least 4 hours. Add some chai spices, combine it with your coffee, add cinnamon, honey, maple syrup or just drink it straight up which is equally as delicious!
