With only 1 day until the opening of the Annapolis Royal Farmers & Traders Summer Market, we are rejoicing in the first flushes of spring mushrooms!
For all you fungiphages (“mushroom eaters”) out there, we’re excited to be bringing fresh Oyster Mushrooms to the table this season. Lovingly cultivated on our homestead just minutes from the market, these versatile and delicious specimens are the perfect way to up your culinary game with ease.
Seductively nutty-tasting, with a more tender texture than your run-of-the-mill buttons, Oysters make a better than fine substitute in nearly any dish you’d usually use mushrooms. Not only will your tastebuds thank you, but your whole body will benefit from their various health-promoting qualities.
While fancy folks say “Pleurotus ostreatus”, we just call ’em delicious! Keep an eye on the blog for tips on incorporating these tender beauties into your springtime seasonal menu.
