I knew I could count on you guys !!!
I ended up cooking them (more like "steeping" them) for the veggie mush (I used the water also). I've been feeding minute amounts of raw shiitake for months so I left that raw. I have a note to call Dr Rimar to ask her about raw vs cooked and if the water was safe to add.
The fresh Maitake was a product of the USA and was actually a "hunk" of mushroom weighing 3.5 oz. I was pretty shocked to find it myself -and it wasn't ridiculoously expensive either !
I made 7 weeks worth of veggie mush (2 tablespoons a day, frozen into ice cube trays - a trick I learned from you guys !!!) with 3.5 oz Shittake (raw) and 3.5 oz oyster and 3.5 oz maitake "steeped". If I have to toss all that I may just cry LOL - so much work (mostly in kitchen clean up !!!).
I know I'm not here much but I have a new job and am putting in 60 - 70 hrs a week on average. I'm just happy to be employed so I'll try and grin and bear it :)
I miss you guys. I've been lurking and have been laughing and crying with "my old gang" as often as possible,
Stay well !!! you guys are always in my heart
(ps - Prancer is SUCH a good girl ! I'm amazed at how mature she's become ... my little girl is growning up ! but she still enjoys a good game of "little lamb" and ZOOMIES !!!!)
