You've seen them wild, why not try them?
Background and Origins:
Snow Oyster mushrooms can be found growing across the globe, and are one of the most common edible wild mushrooms. In modern times, they were first cultivated by Germany during World War 1, however it is likely they have been enjoyed by humans for millennia.
Snow Oysters carry the standard Oyster mushroom taste, being woody, earthy and umami. Snow Oysters are known to be slightly sweeter than other oysters, with a typically larger sized cap.
Recommended Cooking Styles:
Snow Oysters are incredibly versatile and can be used in a wide variety of cooking applications, be it sauteing, stewing, roasting, or even grilling as they typically hold their shape well when cooked. They pick up on other flavors quite well, and their sweet undertones pair well with a savory cooking style.
