Oyster mushrooms have a delicate, subtle flavor, and they’re one of the
most popular mushrooms in the world. They are considered a delicacy in
Japanese, Korean and Chinese cuisine.
Blue oysters mushrooms have a similar, mild flavor as pearl oyster mushrooms, but a chewier texture that makes them an excellent meat substitute.
These certified organic mushrooms are sourced locally in South East QLD from Wulff & Cub.
Their packaging base is made from a sugar cane pulp that is home compostable (or could be used for raising seedlings or gift wrapping or for making craft animals - Huey's idea! ) The lid is a recyclable plastic (non petrochemical).
