Bitter dried shiitake mushrooms, what did I do wrong?

tinery | Aug 11, 2010 01:45 PM

I have some dried shiitake mushrooms and followed the directions for reconstituting them (boiling for 15 minutes and squeezing out excess water). They had an okay texture but they had a gross bitter aftertaste. I'm not sure what I did wrong.

I possibly boiled them longer than 15 minutes. Also the mushrooms themselves are probably kind of old...like at least a year or so.
