Grilled King oyster Mushrooms 2

My friend Angie gave me a bottle of Ume Plum vinegar, asking me to figure out what to do with it. I’ve let this assignment sit on the back burner for a while, not really on purpose, but maybe there was some subconscious procrastination. I tasted the vinegar alone and it’s very salty compared to most vinegars and despite the presence of acid, it’s not really what you expect vinegar to taste like.

I had some King Oyster mushrooms and finding new uses for it has been on my imaginary notepad as well so I decided to kill two birds with one stone. I couldn’t believe my luck. This simple recipe, and first try, was perfect. I seriously wouldn’t change a thing about it. The King Oyster mushrooms have a juiciness that you can’t imagine, even when grilled, and the ume flavor is perfect on mushrooms.
