Making dried shiitake mushroom broth is simple and easy. You only have to soak the dried mushrooms in water for 2 to 5 hours. Use 300 cc (10 oz) of water for the 8 dried mushrooms. Take out the mushrooms and squeeze them with your hands. The mushrooms can be used as a ingredient for the shoyu ramen.
