Dried Wood Ear Mushrooms
Item #: MDW202
Our Price: $4.50



Named for its resemblance to the human ear when fresh, the term "wood ear" can refer to several different closely related species of edible fungus popular in Asian cuisines.

The most common variety of wood ear, Auricularia polytricha, is rarely available fresh, but is most often sold dried, requiring soaking before it can be used.


While it has very little flavor, the wood ear is fun to eat and is popular because if its crisp, crunchy texture, which persists even after lengthy cooking. Fans of Chinese food will recognize it as a frequent ingredient in traditional dishes, adding delightful texture and interest to many salads, soups and stir fries.

Pork & Chestnut Wontons
Chestnuts have been treasured as a delicacy throughout Asia for centuries. Their sweet, gently nutty taste and toothsome texture pair beautifully with the mild flavor of tender pork, as evidenced by the many traditional recipes which use both ingredients.

Wontons are surprisingly easy to make, especially if you use ready-made wonton wrappers, which can be found in most grocery stores these days. Don't worry about making them perfectly on the first try; in cooking, you can almost always eat your mistakes! Rest assured, after two or three, you'll be turning them out like an old pro.

These savory wontons can also be added to chicken stock for a deliciously satisfying dumpling soup, or fried until golden brown for a crisp & crunchy treat. Wontons also freeze exceptionally well, so you can make a big batch and save some for later - if you have any leftovers!
