“Blue Oyster” (Pleurotus ostreatus var. columinus)
A delicate, mild flavor with a velvety texture and a favorite around the world. Oysters can be eaten raw (in moderation) or cooked, and pair well with chicken, seafood and white meats. This mushroom’s meaty texture lends well to frying, stir- fry, and braising. As they are extremely perishable, use Oysters as soon as possible for optimum flavor and quality.
Using Home Grow Mushroom Kits
The very same mushrooms we grow in the chambers of the Field To Fork Facility can be grown in your home. We've done all the hard work for you. Just soak it for a few hours and place in the most humid area of your home for best results (but anywhere can work). Then kick back to watch them grow. Occasional misting is your only chore as you enjoy watching them grow. Once they begin, you will be amazed at how fast they flourish. They’ll be ready to harvest within 1 to 2 weeks. Block or logs produces 1 to 4 pounds, depending on conditions and how many times it is activated to produce a yield (flushed). The hardest part of growing your own mushrooms at home is deciding which favorite recipe or way of cooking them after you pick.
