Mushroom Adventures

Shiitake Patch


Pearl Oyster Mushrooms


For Christmas, my sister gave us a 3-month subscription to the mushroom-growing-kit-of-the-month-club from Fungi Perfecti. Above are some results from the first two kits we have received. The process was a little scary at first (you mist them with water a couple times a day, then BOOM! Mushrooms!) but totally interesting and they are soooo delicious!

So wonderful and freaky!
The pearl oyster is so other-worldly.
YUM!

Such a perfect gift for you two!
