Identification:

Snow oysters are one of the best edible mushrooms. The caps can be huge and can be found 9 inches across when mature, though 4 - 6 inches is more common. They have a super-dense, meaty texture.

Usage:

Snow oysters fare well in any kind of cooking. They can be simply seasoned and oven-roasted or grilled. When sauteed, they cook down quite a bit, but they also crisp and caramelize in an absolutely delightful way.

One cup of oyster mushrooms has approximately 65 calories, 10 grams of carbohydrates, less than 1 gram of fat, and about 5 grams of protein. They are high in several vitamins and minerals including potassium, magnesium, and folate.
