Last summer we made several attempts to grow Yellow Oyster (Pleurotus citrinopileatus) mushrooms. Unfortunately we’d not been successful before the temperatures dropped again and our climate became too cold for them to grow. We knew we’d have to spend the colder months working our a new formula for these golden nuggest of joy. With a bit of tweaking – The addition of hardwood sawdust to our wheat straw and coffee mix – they have grown. They have such a wonderful texture and creamy nutty flavour, they hold their texture well when cooked and make a great addition to most meals.
We love the simplicity of mushrooms on toast, with the addition of Brie, fresh herbs this recipe from Food52 is an absolute dream.
