Blue Oyster Mushroom Growing Kit


Blue Oyster Mushroom Growing Kit

Regular price $19.99

This kit includes a 5mL mushroom culture, instructions, a glossary of mycology terms, and a fungi word search.

Blue Oyster mushrooms were first documented in 1775 by  Nikolaus Joseph Freiherr von Jacquin, a dutch scientist who studied medicine, chemistry, and botany and traveled the world gathering samples and specimens of his discoveries.

Blue Oysters are particularly appreciated for their density, and can be used quite successfully as a replacement for meat in many recipes. They are especially wonderful sauteed in butter.

This is a fun and creative way to grow gourmet mushrooms in your own kitchen. I developed these kits as a way for people to learn a little more about growing mushrooms than your standard mushroom kits will teach you, and no special equipment is required. 

The instructions cover two ways of growing them - the first way is to grow them in a bag of pre-cooked rice on your kitchen counter, the second way is to grow them in a bucket of straw. There is enough culture included to try both methods. Regardless of your growing medium of choice, these are fascinating to grow and delightful to cook with.

• Made in the United States
• Ingredients: We use organic local honey with living mushroom culture in pure water to create our mushroom cultures. They are shelf-stable at room temp for a minimum of six months or can be kept in a very cool area or refrigerator for up to a year. 

The kit is meant to be grown on brown rice, but should the grower have a rice allergy, they could also grow them on straw or a variety of other things - instructions included!
