Traditional Dashi is made with hana-katsuo (fish-flakes). This variation substitutes shiitake mushrooms. The flavor seems more pleasing to Western palates. 1. Soak the kombu and shiitakes in teh water for at least 30 minutes, or preferably, for several hours or overnight. 2. Remove the shiitakes, cut off and discard the stems, and thinly slice the caps. Return the caps to the water and heat, uncovered, over medium heat. Attend the pot and remove the kombu just before the water boils. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the mushrooms from the broth. Reserve the kombu and shiitake for another use. Makes 6 cups, strained. Stock may be stored, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
