The Instacart guide to black trumpet mushrooms
About black trumpet mushrooms
Black trumpet mushrooms might have an unusual look, but they are one of the best-tasting mushrooms you can find. They have a funnel-like shape and come in black, gray, or brown. The cap's edges are wavy and roll outward, and one feature of the black trumpet mushroom that makes it stand out from others is that it has no gills or visible spores.
Black trumpets are both saprotrophic, which means they feed on dead organic matter, and mycorrhizal. Mycorrhizal mushrooms have a symbiotic association with plants, meaning they both supply each other with needed nutrients. The season for black trumpet mushrooms starts in mid-July and runs through September. Because they don't look appealing, they are often overlooked both in the wild and in the store, but these mushrooms are actually highly sought after by chefs worldwide.
These mushrooms have a smooth texture with just a slight wrinkle. They feel soft to the touch, almost like suede. The deep, rich, smokey flavor works well in a wide variety of recipes, and these mushrooms make a delicious addition to sauces, soups, and pasta dishes. When cooking with black trumpet mushrooms, use them with recipes that don't have a lot of other intense flavors, so you don't overpower the taste.
Since black trumpet mushrooms hold their flavor well, they are easy to dry, and they keep well once dried. If you have a bunch of mushrooms that you want to save, dry them out in the oven or in a dehydrator. Just make sure to space them out, so they have plenty of breathing room. Once dried, you can chop them up or turn them into powder and use it as a seasoning in soups and sauces. Add the mushroom powder to rice or couscous or even use it to make flavored butter.
You can also keep the dried mushrooms whole. When you are ready to eat them, reconstitute them by simmering in some water or just let them soak for 15-20 minutes. Once rehydrated, they can be prepared the same way you would use fresh mushrooms. Just keep in mind the texture might be slightly chewier.
