Snow Fungus Soup

AuthorRichard JacobCategoryDifficultyBeginner

Snow Fungus is a white jelly fungus Tremella fuciformis that is available dried in many Asian stores.

This dish was presented as part of the cooking demonstration at the September 2016 meeting. When I served this at the meeting my water to mushroom ration was off. There should have been more water in the finished soup.
