Great for cooking and traditionally used as an immune system booster. There are other medical claims made for this mushroom as well, but it is also a choice edible in soups and crispy fried with or without batter.
Personally, I think these mushrooms smell like lightly rotting apples. It is a fairly strong and distinctive smell, and helps differentiate it from similar mushrooms.
Maitake is one of the more frequently available and cultivated mushrooms in the world, partly because of the perceived medicinal benefits, but also as a popular food. It grows in a mass, with a fluff of ruffles that look like feathers or a riot of petals, and goes by the common name of Hen of the Woods, because of the fluffy appearance.
There is a decent market for this mushroom, but it does best when packaged in specialized forms.
