Matsutake mushrooms - $90/#!

We were in Uwajimaya in the ID in Seattle. And saw Matsutake mushrooms. There were never more than two to a shrink-wrapped package. I’m surprised they weren’t under lock and key. Here’s $20 worth!

Yawn. The A-grade (AKA grade 1) ones are all $99.00+ per lb. in markets all over the L.A.

See? That’s what I get for living at Lake Tahoe. A sheltered life :slight_smile: I’ve also seen their wasabi root for $100/#. I’m such a bumpkin. I shudder over morels for $35/#.

Only $40/# this time
