    Fresh Hon-Shimeji mushrooms, organically cultivated in pristine conditions.

    Generally Available Year Round

    Additional Information

    The Hon-Shimeji mushroom (Hypsizygus tessellatus) is delicate in appearance, with thin stems about 2 to 3 inches long and brown nickel-sized caps. It grows in small clusters, and the mushrooms should be separated for cooking.

    Chefs love these little mushrooms for their nutty, versatile flavor, and crunchy texture. Both caps and stems are edible, so they can be tossed whole into a sauté pan with vegetables. Stir fry them with duck fat for delectable results. Combine Hon-Shimeji with shallots and demi-glace to make a rich sauce.

    For exotic mushrooms that can be cultivated, we work with a certified-organic mushroom farm in Michigan. They produce clean, fresh and flavorful mushrooms that are grown in optimum conditions on a natural substrate of corn husks and oak chips to provide pristine fungi. They are meticulous in their process, continually monitoring and improving the growing conditions to improve characteristics such as size, flavor and presentation.

     

    Do not rinse mushrooms in water – this can destroy their texture; they absorb moisture like a sponge. Instead, use a brush, cloth or paper towel to remove any unwanted particles. Store mushrooms in the refrigerator in a paper bag; plastic encourages deterioration in quality and texture.

    Don’t eat Hon-Shimeji raw, as they are quite bitter that way and their nutritional value is only available when cooked.

    Trim the conjoined ends of the mushroom clusters, removing any residue from the cultivation beds.
