The first of our mushrooms to fruit enough for us to try some were the lion's mane, so we harvested a small one today to share. Aren't they cool looking?
Eric had read that these mushrooms can taste like lobster, but we were both skeptical. I mean, that's just weird, right? Eric actually has spent his life not fond of mushrooms, so after he sauteed them up in a pan with a bit of butter and a touch of salt and pepper, I was the first to try.
Would you believe me if I tell you they taste like lobster?! They totally do! My mouth is watering thinking about it.
It's vegetarian (vegan if you don't use butter), low cal, low point, naturally grown & chemical free lobster! Kosher too, for those who are so inclined.
Even better? Check out this article from the Huffington Post. Researchers have been experimenting with lion's mane's apparent ability to regenerate nerves, improve memory and cognition, and boost mood.
Oh, and the pink oysters? Yeah, they're going to be harvested this weekend, for sure.
