1kg Snowflake Mushroom Box
Snowflake or Coral Tooth mushrooms have very short stems with multiple thin branches growing upwards like snowflake or coral tooth. The branched stalks have a firm texture, despite the whole mushroom being relatively fragile. Snowflake mushrooms have an earthy aroma, are tender and delicate, and offer a mild, woodsy flavor with a slight peppery aftertaste. Many chefs say “it’s got a subtle, sweet lobster flavour”.
Snowflake mushrooms is low in calories and provide vast amounts of protein and fiber. Adding fiber to your diet may help lower the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and gastrointestinal diseases. Additionally, snowflake mushrooms also provide great amounts of vitamin D, zinc, calcium, and folate, which play a key role in immunity, bone health, and brain development, respectively.
Snowflake mushrooms can be consumed raw but are most often cooked as they can cause an upset stomach in some consumers. They are delicate and will soften and wilt quickly when heated, so they are often used as a finishing garnish in soups, stews, and stir-fries. They can also be lightly battered and fried to serve as an appetizer, sautéed and served alongside fish or seafood as a play on coral in an under the sea theme, or pickled and preserved for later use. Furthermore, snowflake mushrooms pair well with lettuce, bok choy, snap peas, green beans, cherry tomatoes, vinaigrette, miso soup, tofu, soy sauce, mirin, seafood such as white fish, prawns, shrimp, and crab, and meats such as poultry, beef, and pork. They will keep for several weeks when pickled.
