Dried shiitakes are surprisingly meaty

Last night we made kenchinjiro, which is a kind of miso stew. As Y dug in, he remarked, "Wow...this shiitake is surprisingly meaty!" I couldn't agree more. Dried shiitakes have a much stronger taste than fresh ones for some reason. And as a bonus, you can use the soaking water for soup stock!
