Pink Oyster Mushrooms

Beautiful Pink Oyster Mushroom

What a thrill — our first harvest of gorgeous pink oyster mushrooms! Grown on organic pine sawdust from a kit through Ohau Gourmet Mushrooms. They’ve been easy and fun to grow indoors, requiring only misting with water.

They’ve also been a fun way to learn about exponential growth, as they double in size every day until you harvest them or they spore.

Even better: sautéed with garlic, butter and olive oil (for twenty minutes). So delicious!
Pink Oyster Mushrooms with herbs on toast
Another option I will definitely make again: pink oyster mushrooms sautéed with ghee, garlic, thyme, spring onions, parsley, salt and pepper on Thoroughbread paleo almond toast.

Bonus flamingo pink sunrise this morning foreshadowing the day’s delights.
