Hen-of-the-Woods Mushrooms (Maitake)/マイタケ

This evening, I got this box from the daughter of a neighbor. Can you tell what is in this box? Maitake! Not just ordinary maitake but maitake produced in the Shiozawa area of Minami Uonuma city! It is more solid and meaty than cheaper, spongy maitake, and is almost twice as expensive! 500 g of it! All my family love maitake! I think I'll put some of it in miso soup and pan-fry some of it with butter and salt. I'm excited!
