10 pounds of fresh lion's mane makes 1 pound of dried mushrooms.
Hericium erinaceus also called Lion's Mane Mushroom, Satyr's Beard, Bearded Tooth Mushroom, Bearded Hedgehog Mushroom, pompom mushroom, Bearded Tooth Fungus, or pom pom mushroom. These are wild, not cultivated at this time. They will have some debris from the woods. They are said to have medicinal values as well, but we cannot say anything about that due to legalities. We recommend you research the medicinal benefits though. Use as a tea or a tincture. Not good for culinary consumption. Make sure to rinse your mushrooms before making a tea or tincture.
The wild lion's mane is more for making teas and tinctures, the cultivated is good for eating and making teas and tinctures.
Dried mushrooms will last for many years if you freeze as soon as you receive them. After opening, transfer into a freezer bag or food saver bag.
Oregon Mushrooms has been sharing our passion for mushrooms with others via the Internet since our first eBay sale back in 1999. We started out smaller with a focus on high quality dried morel mushrooms but soon customers began asking after the availability of other types of mushrooms. As a result of this kind of demand, we've since expanded our high-quality inventory to offer a variety of dried and fresh seasonal and cultivated mushrooms as well as unique mushroom-related specialty and gift items, such as black truffle oil and white truffle oil and truffle butter and truffle sea salt. All of our products are GMO Free! We do not believe in selling anything that is genetically modified.
