Oyster, Enoki & Beech mushrooms for sale at Kennett Mushroom Festival

This photo's for Carol


OYSTER mushrooms are named for their shell-shaped caps and grow in clusters. They have a delicate flavor and velvety texture. Most often a soft gray, but they may also be cream, pink, yellow or blue. It is a good idea to remove the stems; use caps whole or halved; must be cooked, but only briefly; cooking with butter brings out flavor; great alone or in combo with seafood, chicken or veal, in soups and omelets.

ENOKI mushrooms are decorative mini-mushrooms. They consists of long-stemmed, white clusters with button-like caps and are mild in flavor and pleasingly crunchy. It is a god idea to cut each cluster about 1" from bottom, where fused stems begin to separate; serve raw or very lightly cooked; add to salads and sandwiches for appealing crunch; use as a garnish for soups and main dishes.

:) HA! HA! You are a jewel! When I saw the picture and before seeing the caption, I thought, well, that Stephanie included a pic of the mushrooms I was inquiring about. Thank you! I looked them up on-line; maybe I can find some at some point. Thanks for your thoughtfulness.
