A 1kg Black Pearl King Oyster Mushroom Box
The Black Pearl King Oyster is new in the world of mushroom growing. This strain is a Japanese hybrid between king trumpets and pearl oyster mushrooms. This Japanese variety is very dense and meaty as it displays favourable traits from both parent species, forming dense clusters of king oyster-like mushrooms with dark caps. Unlike other oyster varieties, the stems of the Black Pearl King are great to eat (similar to the king trumpets) and are very meaty and juicy.
This Japanese hybrid oyster mushroom cross has a slew of health benefits: they are fat free, low in calories, and packed with vitamins and minerals. If you’re trying to introduce more iron, calcium, vitamin C, or B complex vitamins into your diet, this is a great mushroom for you! In addition, these mushrooms may have cholesterol-lowering and antioxidant properties. Black Pearl mushrooms are a great option if you’re looking for a healthy mushroom to add to your weekly grocery list.
Black Pearl mushrooms are versatile and can be used in many of the same ways as an oyster or king trumpet mushroom. The unique flavor and peppery aftertaste of Black Pearl mushrooms means they can hold their own when cooked in soups and chili. They are a wonderful addition to pasta as well. The creative culinary possibilities with this mushroom are endless. Additionally, a simple sauté in butter or oil yields a deliciously flavorful accompaniment to nearly any meal; or it will be delicious alongside an expertly grilled steak. The stems of the Black Pearl can be sliced into rounds and sautéed or chopped and added into your favorite dish.
We recommend you eat your Black Pearl mushrooms fresh. However, if you’d like to preserve these mushrooms, they can be frozen after a quick, three-minute blanch in boiling water. You can also dry the mushrooms in an oven at ~65 degrees Celsius. Store them in an airtight container and rehydrate them by placing them in a bowl of warm water.
