Wildland Foods Chaga Chunks LOCAL
75 grams dried chaga equivalent to approximately 150 grams fresh chaga mushroom
An excellent coffee substitute, this mushroom is simmered to make a rich tea, full of antioxidents and nutrients. Our Chaga is all winter harvested sustainably from birch trees without damaging the trees.
Simmer 75 grams chaga in 4-6 cups water 15-30 minutes in pot on stovetop or slow cooker for 2-3 hrs until rich, coffee-like colour is acquired, strain and sweeten/add cream as desired. Strain and freeze chunks and reuse up to 3 times until flavour/colour is reduced.
1 package makes 20+ cups
Note: you may use smaller quantities of chaga to start but it will take longer to achieve the same strength
