1st time ordering from JCB, and they treated me very well. Purchased some fresh lions mane. As we weren't sure how long it would take to ship here I was curious about their dried Lions Mane option so they sent us 50g Free to try out. It did take much longer to get here than we hoped (not their fault) but they were prompt with answering questions and provided tracking #. I would recommend them but if you are getting it shipped, get the dried options instead of fresh to avoid products going bad.
These lasted for over a week in our fridge. A lovely rich texture for soup and quiche
It is my first time to try out this mushroom and thankfully the staff at JCB are knowledgeable to let me know how to cook, store and shelf date! The mushrooms 🍄 were so fresh and delicious! My husband who’s a carnivore really enjoyed our mushroom steaks 🥩! I’m already excited to do our next purchase !
