Lobster mushrooms are quite possibly one of the most striking mushrooms you will ever see. The fiery red exterior will liven up any dish you choose to pair them with. You will find the texture of this mushroom unlike any other mushroom you have eaten. With a defined firmness and crunch, they will add a depth of character to your favorite pasta dishes. Cook with fresh herbs, white wine and cream and serve on top of some fresh pasta for a delicious and simple treat.
Our lobster mushrooms are sustainably foraged in the Pacific Northwest of the United States and Canada.
How to Store and Handle Dried Wild Mushrooms
- Dried wild mushrooms can be reconstituted by placing them in a bowl with warm water, wine or stock. Mushrooms should rehydrate in 15-20 minutes and then be strained in a colander to remove any excess liquid and debris.
- Once reconstituted, the wild mushrooms will yield about 6-8 times their dried weight.
- Unused dried mushrooms should be kept in air tight packaging once opened in order to reduce their exposure to unwanted moisture.
- Wild mushrooms will last for months when stored in a dry area away from direct sunlight.
