$15 - $25 suggested donation
The Blue Oyster mushroom is one of the most cold-hardy of the Pleurotus family, which has made it a mainstay of do-it-yourself mushroom cultivators. Like its cousins, it grows rapidly, digests a wide variety of wood types and produces large, stately bouquets. Well-suited to both indoor and outdoor cultivation techniques, it is a resilient and forgiving choice for both hobbyists and commercial growers, especially in cooler climes.

The primordia emerge a deep blue that fades to blue-gray as the caps expand and mature. Packed with protein, aminos, antioxidants and numerous medicinal compounds, Pleurotus spp. are food-medicine at its finest. I recommend peeling them apart by hand into slivers, then sautéing them with butter or ghee for a delightfully crispy, chewy savory delicacy.
