    Flavor and Texture: Blue Oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus Ostreatus) are very mild in flavor and, like Lion’s Mane, have a taste compared to a softly flavored crab meat—but more subtly. They offer a delicate sweetness that can be amplified or tempered through cooking styles. Blue Oysters are velvety and lightweight, more fluffy than a King Trumpet or Lion’s Mane mushroom. While Blue Oysters are a recipe-friendly mushroom option that can be added to just about anything, we like them best with a simple sauté in unsalted butter or quality olive oil. They offer a buttery, melt-in-your-mouth texture that is sure to bring the family back for seconds. Always cook your Blue Oysters to at least 140 degrees before enjoying. We do not recommend eating Blue Oyster raw.

    Benefits: Like most of the other mushrooms in the oyster family, Blue Oysters offer a myriad of nutritional benefits. They contain virtually no cholesterol and provide compounds that are actually associated with lowering cholesterol levels. Blue Oysters are a great, low carb source of protein, fiber, niacin, and Vitamin B5. They are also a great, organic source of antioxidants, which reduce free radical damage.

    Due to the nature of our products, processing time frames can vary. Please feel free to contact our Customer Service Department at 864-978-5466 if you have any questions prior to ordering.

    We recommend storing your mushrooms in the packaging they come in or transferring them to a paper bag. We do NOT recommend placing them in the crisper as this will speed up the aging process. Mushrooms need air flow, and our packaging provides that to help the shelf life and the freshness of the mushrooms. If your mushrooms dry out a little in the packaging, we like to suggest using them in soups or broths to get full use out of them. Our fresh Blue Oyster mushrooms can be stored for roughly 5-7 days under these recommendations.
