The Mushroom Everyone's Talking About

Chestnut Mushrooms - Pholiota Adiposa

Customers have asked for many types of mushrooms, from the regular “button” mushroom, to the wildly experimental morel, but there was one mushroom that was requested the most.

By popular demand, we are excited to introduce our newest mushroom kit, the gorgeous Chestnut Mushroom, Pholiota adiposa

Their large clusters of golden brown caps adorned by frilly white veils fragments are a gorgeous sight to behold!  This mushroom is sure to tantalize your taste buds and elevate your culinary creations to new heights. 

Chestnut Mushrooms

Chestnut mushrooms add a nutty umami flavour and a crunchier texture than other mushrooms. Their unique flavour and texture profile makes them a versatile addition to many dinners.

The caps are both nutty and sweet with a peppery finish, and the stems retain a crisp, crunchy texture similar to asperagus after cooking. These qualities make it an excellent addition to risottos, meat or tofu dishes, and in stews, soups and fried dishes, and even in pastries.

Beyond their great nutritional value, research suggests that Chestnut mushrooms may offer immune-boosting and antibacterial properties.  One study isolated an antioxidant compound from Pholiota adiposa that may inhibit HIV replication.

The Key is to Keep Cold or Delay Shipping

Refrigeration will delay fruiting for a month or more, and a cold dark basement will slow them for 2-3 weeks.  A sticker on your parcel will alert the recipient to keep it cold.

We encourage you to order early to avoid the uncertainties of the seasonal postal rush, and delay shipping.  To delay shipping, select a date on the checkout page, found directly under your total order $ value.   If you don’t select a date, we will ship in 1-2 business days.

The elves at our family farm are doing our best to keep everything in stock, but we request your understanding just in case we run out and substitute a similar product in order to ship on time.  

Consider also the option of a non-perishable gift, like booksmushroom hot chocolate, or a gift card so that your loved one can choose a living gift when timing is best for them.
