Our premium organically farmed gourmet Gray Oyster mushrooms are home grown right here on our Unique Creek Homestead on hard wood logs from our forest! We have a small mushroom farm in a shady, damp area of our property back in our woods, were we grow and harvest our mushrooms. We harvest them at just the right time for maximum flavoring, then dry them for uses in soups, salads, stirfrys, Asian cuisines, pizza toppings, in spaghetti and other pasta dishes and MUCH more!
Remember, mushrooms are 92 percent water. When mushrooms are cooked, they release a lot of liquid! Dried mushrooms are 10% or less of their original weight but can be rehydrated quick and easily!
Organic Dried Gourmet Gray Oyster Mushrooms
HEALTH BENEFITS: Is oyster mushroom good for health?Vitamins and MineralsOyster mushrooms are an excellent source of several vitamins, including niacin (providing 21% of your recommended daily intake), riboflavin (18%), and pantothenic acid (11%). You'll also get smaller amounts of folate, vitamin B6, and thiamin.
USES: Culinary uses The oyster mushroom is frequently used in Japanese, Korean and Chinese cookery as a delicacy. It is frequently served on its own, in soups, stuffed, or in stir-fry recipes with soy sauce. Oyster mushrooms are sometimes made into a sauce, used in Asian cooking, which is similar to oyster sauce.
REHYDRATION: Put the dried mushrooms in tepid water for at least 15 minutes, depending on how thick the dried mushrooms are. I like a narrow tall bowl to soak them in. This concentrates any potential debris or sand in the bottom of the bowl, leaving the rehydrating mushrooms floating in the clean water above.
