Chinese Black Mushroom

HippieChick | Jun 10, 2012 04:15 PM

It used to be every corner Chinese takeout joint had these on the menu, often in a dish with bamboo shoots and water chestnuts. Loved it. But I can't find the delicious black shrooms anywhere now...any thoughts? If I wanted to get some for home cooking, what would I ask for? I tried dried shiitake once, which I guess these are, and they just weren't remotely the same. Ideas, please?
