They are also known as black fungus, black tree fungus and tree ear. The Chinese, who value a combination of textures in their dishes, make great use of this mushroom. This mushroom is a little chewier than other mushrooms and slightly gelatinous. Wood ears require half an hour soaking time before use. 1/2oz package.
