Botanical Name: Pleurotus ostreatus
Other Common Name: Winter Oyster
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.
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.
Possible Health Benefits:
- may lower cholesterol
- promote heart health
- support better immune function
- improve metabolic health
This was a gift for my daughter who is a novice mushroom forager. She absolutely loved this. While the instructions provided could probably use some accompanying pictures/illustrations, she was very pleasantly surprised that, by day 10, as the instructions noted, her mushrooms were flourishing. Surprising amount able to be harvested.
