Add your boiling water to your dried wood ear mushrooms. It should be enough to cover the mushrooms and place a lid on to keep the mushrooms submerged. Soak mushrooms in hot water for at least 15 minutes or until pliable.
Rinse the mushrooms one by one under the sink and massage under the water until clean.
Chop or thinly slice mushrooms for your recipe.
Wood ear Mushrooms that are rehydrated are best used immediately for that meal only. You CANNOT store rehydrated wood ear mushrooms in water in the refrigerator overnight due to possible cross contamination. See Notes below for details.
Dried wood ear mushrooms can be kept dry up to a year if stored in an air tight container or bag. Soaked and softened mushrooms need to be consumed immediately.
