Shiitakes' meaty texture and earthy, smoky flavor has made them one of the most highly prized edible fungi. You'll love growing your own with Howard Berk and Todd Pittard's mushroom growing log. The duo salvage recently felled oak and sweetgum trees, cut them into logs, and plant organic shiitake spores inside. All that's left to do is soak your log and keep it in a damp, cool, dark place. Soon: fresh shiitake heaven. Re-soak and harvest every six weeks or so for up to three years. That's a lot of shrooms for stir-fries, stuffings, salads, and sauces. Put a smile on the face of your favorite mushroom lover, gardener, or mad scientist. Handmade in Georgia.
