Not only are they extremely good for you, they are super tasty and versatile. With a Gourmet Mushroom Farm you can have your own mushrooms growing within a week or two.
The best way to store mushrooms is in a paper bag, which allows them to breathe. Leave them in the main part of the refrigerator to get good airflow, not the produce drawer.
Slice off the stem of the mushrooms, which separates the individual caps. Saute 2 to 3 minutes in olive oil. Add a smashed garlic clove to infuse a bit of flavor. This brightens and lightens the flavor. Use any herbs you like: chives, basil, oregano, or thyme would be fantastic. Also check out our other recipes.
Pinning is the first sign of your baby mushrooms starting to grow. They look like little pins and they will double in size about every 24 hours.

It is a ‘Ready To Fruit’ growing block for growing your own mushrooms at home.
Oyster mushroom can grow at moderate temperature ranging from 15 to 25 degrees C.
Great, you have finished enjoying your mushrooms and the growing block is now spent (4-6 weeks). The spent mushroom blocks are great for your garden. Break them up and put in your garden. They provide really good nutrients and the mycelium can even continue to grow underground to provide even more benefits for your soil.
No, many have had success with just a dark cupboard, water sprayer and making sure they get fresh air now and then.
Most likely the block is in a regeneration state. Unless it has been exposed to extremly high temperature it should be fine and when the conditions are right it will fruit again. Some have waited 8+ weeks for further flushes to occur.
Yes it is! In-fact, this is exactly why we make our mini farms Ready To Fruit. We take the hard parts out of growing so you can hit the ground running with learning to grow mushrooms.
Yes you sure can! Pluck of some of the larger mushrooms and that will leave more energy to go into the rest of them that may be slightly smaller.
You can but yes you will get more mushrooms growing at the same time.
The best place is somewhere out of direct sunlight and where it is not going to dry out to quickly.
In the kitchen is fine. Some people put them in the bathroom or laundry as there can be some more humidity as well as fresh air.
