Fresh Reishi (Philadelphia Pickup or Delivery Only)

from 50.00

Fresh Bulk Philly-Grown Reishi (Rochester Red Strain). Chemical Free. Mushrooms grown on hardwood sawdust, chemical-free bran, recycled gypsum. Never sprayed (just water).

Fresh Reishi is more easily sliced than dry reishi and it can also be blended in water in a high-power blender like a Vitamix. This makes exraction in hot water more efficient.

Shelf-Life- 2 weeks or more in a good refrigerator.

*Fresh weight was determined at harvest. Some weight loss may have occured due to drying in cooler, but this does not negate from the raw material.

*Fresh Reishi is NOT available outside of the Philadelphia area.

*Available for Pickup from Farm OR delivered anywhere in Philly for total orders over $100 delivered anywhere in Philly

Basic Preparation:  Cover Fresh mushrooms (whole, chunk, or sliced and blended in a good blender) with water.  Boil mushrooms for a long time.  Pour and Save.  Boil, pour and save again until satisfied it's given up the ghost.   Save "Tea" in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.  Compost used mushrooms,  or use them in your garden or pots to very slowly break down and help soil retain moisture.  At least chuck them in a bush somewhere.  **The First Boil will be the most bitter**

Serve Cold: Reishi Tea over ice, with lemon [grass, balm, verbena etc] and your favorite honey.  

Cook your oatmeal or rice in mushroom tea.  Creamy oatmeal especially hides the bitter.  And if you're making it every day, just leave the reishi in your kettle for 4-7 days.  Just bring it to a boil for a few minutes each time.  This, along with adding to broths is one of the ways to minimize extra energy usage- taking advantage of times when you're already heating water

We are looking into doing a large batch Laboratory Extraction for optimal 1) beta glucan yield 2) ease of delivery and 3) energy efficiency.  The end product will be a potent, dissolvable powder.  This is the Extract you will be asked about in checkout.
