Straw Mushrooms ( Hed Fang )

Straw mushrooms are a common ingredient of Thai cuisine, often used in Tom-Yum spicy soup and in other dishes. Where you would use white-cap mushrooms, Thai's normally use Straw or Shitake mushrooms. Best bought fresh, also available canned, I don't recommend the dried mushrooms, straw mushrooms lose a lot of flavour when they are dried.

Here are the fresh mushrooms, I bought these at 4am at the market, and photographed them at noon, and already they are starting to go black!
