Shitake Mushrooms

Here’s something DH does in his spare time:

Shitake 64
growing shitake mushrooms
(mushroom kit from Fungi Perfecti)

Shitake 54t
Evolution of Mushroom

His best crop so far prompted perusal of the cookbooks in anticipation of the harvest feast:
Beef Wellington with Shitake
Stuffed Shitake
Beef with Shitake
Chicken Rolls with Shitake
Asian Rice Salad with Crabmeat & Shitake
Monkfish with Shitake Mushrooms and Fresh Ginger

from The Complete Mushroom Cookbook by Antonio Carluccio
Mushrooms Favorite Recipes by Andrea Kösslinger & Sibylle Reiter

Ah, Saturday morning, coffee and cookbooks…

See them grow “28 hours later”:

and GROW “and three days after that”:

    …in the dining room. These don’t need to be kept in the dark, just out of direct sunlight. They make an interesting decorative feature.
