My mushrooms have grown like weeds and today we picked them. These are the six biggest ones – there is only one left on the patch so hope more ail bloom.
They do look different, don’t they. The directions said they taste like lobster when cooked with onions so I sautéd an onion, sliced the mushrooms and sautéd them in a little butter then made a lobster new burg with them.
You see it looks like lobster new burg; and it does taste a lot like lobster new burg. The mushrooms have the consistency of lobster which makes it taste more like the lobster too. It was very good. The recipe said it would serve four and this is all that was left- one slice of toast with the new burg- we ate the other 7 but they did not have quite as much new burg on them- they didn’t need as much. It is very rich. We will have this for supper and split the new burg with another piece of toast. Now we will watch and hope the patch blooms again so we can repeat this. When the patch is finished we will take the left over spores and inoculate a couple stumps in TN. I knew there was a good reason for Norman to leave the oak stumps about 3 foot tall and now I know what it is – the perfect place to grow mushrooms!! Have a good day.
