Huitlacoche, also known as Cuitlacoche, is the Mexican corn smut that tantalizes taste buds with its unique flavor profile. Once cooked, it offers a delightful blend of mushroom-like, sweet, savory, woody, and earthy notes, creating a harmonious culinary experience. Its flavor compounds, including sotolon, vanillin, and the sugar glucose, contribute to its extraordinary taste. Revered as "el oro negro," or black gold, by farmers, this delicacy finds its perfect place as a filling in quesadillas and other tortilla-based dishes.

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.
