Mushroom grow blocks are directly pulled from our crop lines, these are the same blocks we use to produce the mushrooms and results in our pictures. Our farm blocks are much larger than typical grow at home kits, averaging 4.6-5kg per block resulting in much larger flushes and the potential for huge harvests.
Mushroom grow blocks will have 1-4 flushes (harvests) depending on outside factors such as grow conditions etc
Yellow oyster mushrooms are small to medium in size with caps averaging 2-6 centimetres in diameter and are attached to a short stem. The thin, dry, smooth caps are daffodil yellow, semi-circular, and look like small petals clustered and layered into a small bouquet. When young, the caps are flat, and with age, they begin to curl and become convex with wavy edges. Underneath the caps, there are many soft, short, white gills that connect to an ivory white, small stem. Yellow oyster mushrooms have a fruity aroma reminiscent of an aged red wine and are velvety, crisp, and chewy. When raw, Yellow oyster mushrooms can be somewhat bitter, but when cooked, they developed a balanced, nutty flavor similar to the flavor of cashews.
Yellow oyster mushrooms are best suited for cooked applications such as stir-frying, braising, boiling, or sauteing. The stems may be quite bitter to some individuals, in which case they should be removed and discarded.
Yellow oyster mushrooms can be sliced and cooked in soups, mixed into sauces, sauteed and served over steak, cooked into omelettes, sprinkled over pizza, or cooked and served on toast. They can also be stir-fried with other vegetables, baked in a tart, or sauteed until crispy and then crumbled to create a mock buttery, bacon bits.
These mushrooms are extremely versatile and can act as a substitute for button or other oyster mushrooms in many different recipes. Yellow oyster mushrooms pair well with poultry, seafood, steak, cilantro, thyme, parsley, rosemary, tarragon, garlic, garlicscapes, onion, leeks, fennel, arugula, white turnip, asparagus, bok choy, potatoes, lemon, brie, pine nuts, coconut milk, rice, noodles, quinoa, or barley.
