Spicy and Sweet Glazed Woodear Mushrooms

Watch these dried Woodear mushrooms transform before your eyes into a delicious dish with a kick. This dramatic mushroom has a distinct crunchy, yet melt-in-your-mouth texture. Their appearance is dark, nearly black, on top, and creamy white on the underside. But once dehydrated, they turn this golden brown color. They remain crunchy which is an added bonus for fungi.
