Premium Dried Lobster Mushrooms - Hypomyces lactifluorum - 1/4 Pound
One of the most loved dried mushrooms to be found, Lobster Mushrooms add a fantastic flavor and unique color to dishes. A great vegetarian alternative to real lobster, it can be used in many ways! Lobster Mushroom Chowder anyone?
This unique mushroom gets its name from the color it has resembling cooked lobster. Some even say that it can imitate the taste of lobster. This mushroom actually incorporates well with just about anything you cook it with. It has a firm, yet soft texture that is unlike many mushrooms which could be described as "slimy." A great mushroom for those sensitive to texture but want the benefits of consuming wild mushrooms.
These mushrooms are harvested fresh and immediately cleaned, trimmed, sliced and dried. This is not a great mushroom to sell fresh as they do not have a good shelf life at all. Because of this (plus the fact that the flavor is 100x better dried), we do not sell fresh lobster mushrooms and dry all that we get.
All lobster mushrooms are packaged in sealed packaging with a desiccant included for maximum freshness!
