Meet our mushrooms
Versatile & delicious
Let’s discuss the DELICIOUSNESS!
Mushrooms are a versatile food that pairs well with meats, pasta, vegetables, and can also play the starring role in a dish. You can find a plethora of recipes including mushrooms.
Another added benefit? They are impervious to over-cooking. It's nearly impossible to cook these bad boys too much.
Our favorite way to cook mushrooms are to use a method called “dry” sauteing. You slice, chop or tear (this is amazingly gratifying after a long day of work!) the mushrooms (not too small as they will shrink as they lose moisture) Let them cook in their own juices in a medium/hot pan for 5-8 minutes. You can stop here and enjoy if you do not want to add any other ingredients, but continue cooking for a few more minutes. However, to add extra flavor you can add butter and or oil to the pan and continue to cook, add salt and pepper to taste. You can experiment with other spices such as garlic, thyme, parsley, rosemary, oregano, and many more.
keepin' it fresh
The best way to store fresh mushrooms is in a paper bag placed in the refrigerators’ main compartment. The fruit and veggie drawer will have too much humidity. You can place a paper towel on the bottom of the bag. Please enjoy your mushrooms as soon as possible. The Fresher the Better. Most types of mushrooms will last in the refrigerator for 7-10 days.
super 'shroom to the rescue
Part of the kingdom called fungi, mushrooms share some characteristics with both plants and animals. Structurally they are more similar to plants. Like humans and animals, they “breathe” oxygen and emit carbon dioxide. They have been consumed for thousands of years around the world. The part of the mushroom we eat is similar to the fruit of a plant.
In general mushrooms offer a wide variety of nutritional benefits. They are low in calories, fat, cholesterol and sodium, while being an excellent source of fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. There are countless studies on the medicinal properties of mushrooms, from decreasing inflammation, lowering cholesterol, boosting immunity and brain health. They protect against free radicals, and have antiviral and antibacterial properties.
