They charge us 8 or 9 bucks a pound for shitakes, in Tomball. Naturally I'm interested.

we are truly blessed in that, living in the nucleus of the US mushroom industry, we always know where our shiitakes and criminis and bull and oyster and etc mushrooms come from. They come from Sherockees. Shiitakes must be fresh, otherwise you jus dry them completely and reconstitue for that stronger "dried shrrom " taste that is ideal for soups.
Non of that imported crap.

I do recall that the shitakes are sometimes very dry, and I did not buy them. I guess you don't really need a label to know the difference.

well we create markets for otherwise overripe mushrooms. The same mushroom is known as the "button" when small, a "stuffer' when the gills are open, and a "Portabello" when overripe.
Weve actually created the market for portableeos by letting people like Julioa Child screw with them .


My favorite mushroom is, of course, the morel, followed by the "oyster'. Both are wild shrooms that grow in unique limited environments.

I don't get to experiment much. My wife hates them; I only have some when she's away from the house.

@edgarblythe,
Im going hunting for wild oyster mushrooms this week. They are starting to show up in the piney woods up here in Washington County MAine. They appear as large caps in the forest duff and are quite easy to spot and they are easily distinguished from "Death Angels" by thier lack of a stem collar and their deep brown gills.
