Hedgehog mushrooms are similar to chanterelles in color and flavor. Many mushroom hunters prize the hedgehog mushroom for its flavor, which is considered sweet and nutty, and has a slightly crunchy texture that is quite pleasing. If the moisture content is high, wrap your mushrooms in paper towels and then in a hand towel so it soaks up the excess of moisture, the shelf life is 5 -7 days once it starts raining, check them every day because if one goes bad it will spread to the other mushrooms very quickly. You will know because they turn brown or get slimy, slimy is different than being wet. Also they may mold, it is very obvious if they start to mold, they will get black spots or green mold. Just make sure to throw that mushroom away.
We have dried hedgehogs available all year.
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.
