Shitake Mushrooms in the Bathroom
We have these mushrooms - looking like a big toasty marshmallow - in our bathroom. Yep. Dampest place in the house of course, but it's still a little odd to bathe with the hunk-o-mushrooms right there. They're growing like crazy though! We've had the kit for a week now and will be able to harvest later this week. Pretty amazing to watch how quickly they grow. Have to spray them down 3 or 4 times a day but hopefully they will be delicious. At the store - dried - they are $96 a pound. Package of 3 mushrooms or so is $7! So we've never tried them, but will soon :o) Can hardly wait - what should I cook with them though? Risotto? Garlic, butter & shitake over noodles?? Any suggestions?
