Shitake Log

My friend Margot gave us a shitake log a few months ago.  We left it outside and nothing much happened with it.  But a couple weeks ago we went to her house and saw that she had a crazy motherload of shitakes.  It turns out you have to soak the log for 24 hours for it to develop.  We soaked the log last week and now we are in business!  The first night George cooked them in butter and I do believe they were the tastiest mushrooms I've ever had.  I don't know if it was the butter or the mushrooms, but I am loving the log!  Thank you Margot!

You are very welcome. Aren't they beautiful?? And delicious. I'll send over a copy of a soup recipe for George to try.
