About pink oyster mushrooms

The pink oyster mushroom is a tropical mushroom that has a meaty and fishy flavor. The mushroom was first documented in 1775 by Dutch naturalist Nikolaus Joseph Freiherr von Jacquin and has been cultivated since the 1940s for commercial purposes. This mushroom is rarely found in supermarkets because it has a short shelf life, but you may be able to find it in some stores. 

Pink oyster mushrooms can be cooked in many ways, including sauteed, fried, boiled, or roasted. They can be a part of pasta, rice, or vegetable dishes, or a substitute for meat or fish. Pickle the mushrooms to enjoy them during the fall or winter seasons or fry them and enjoy them as a snack. The pinkness of the mushrooms disappears once they are cooked.

Stews, soups, and risottos are great options for pink oyster mushrooms to be a part of and add a hearty flavor. For instance, in a pan, add some olive oil, mushrooms, and garlic. Cook for about two minutes, reduce the heat, cover the pan, and cook for another five minutes. The mushrooms will release their own water and cook. This should take about 10 minutes. Once the mushrooms are cooked, add green onions, salt, and pepper. Cook for a couple more minutes and enjoy.

These can be served as a side dish to meat, with some tofu, or even alone. Pink oyster mushrooms can be quite filling even if eaten without anything else. Mushrooms with bread or rice make for a nice simple meal. Once the mushrooms are cooked, you can also boil some pasta and add it to the mushrooms.

Pink oyster mushrooms grow quickly and are ideal for the first-time gardener. They can grow on straw, cardboard, or paper, and they need some daylight while fruiting, but not too much. Use a water spray bottle to keep them moist. If you choose to grow them on damp straw in a bag, spread the spawn over the bag, tie it, and poke some holes in it.

Place a bag of mushrooms at room temperature and spray water over it to keep it moist. In about two weeks, the mycelium spreads, and the bag can be moved to a brighter area. In the next few days, the mushroom heads will start to pop out of the holes. Once they separate from their stems, they are ready to be harvested.
