Oyster Mushrooms are fluted, oyster shell shaped vareities found on rotting tree stumps and fallen trees. They are common throughout North America.
Raw mushrooms have a disagreeable taste but when lightly cooked they develop a mild flavour and a very succulent texture.
Oyster mushrooms are very versatile and can be added to soups or can be lightly sautéed and added to seafood or white meat dishes. Crumbed, deep fried and served with sweet chilli sauce they make a wonderful starter to a meal.
These mushrooms are extremely perishable and should be used as quickly as possible.
