We raise our oyster and shiitake mushrooms in a fruiting room which allows for year round production. Our mushrooms are propagated in sawdust blocks and take approximately two weeks to fruit.
Not sure how to prepare mushrooms? Here are our favorite ways:
(VEGAN) Oyster "BACON" STYLE MUSHROOMS ~ chop entire mushroom and coat with your choice of oil (evoo, coconut, etc.) and salt. Cook in the oven on a cookie sheet, 350 degrees ~10 minutes (or until they have reached the crispiness that you prefer).
(VEGAN) Shiitake "BACON" STYLE MUSHROOMS ~ Prepare the same way as Oyster mushrooms except remove stem from cap and freeze to use in broth/stock at a different time.
Sauteed Mushrooms ~ chop mushrooms, add to butter and evoo meling in a pan on stove. Sautee until cooked to your liking, add 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar ~1 minute before cooking is complete.
*Eating raw mushrooms may lead to gastric distress.
