Oyster Mushrooms got their name from their distinctive shape, which many people believe look like an oyster. Some even claim they have a similar flavor and texture.
Oyster mushrooms should be moist, but not wet. Many people like to smaller mushrooms believing they are the most tender. However, many chefs prefer the larger ones because of their heft and meaty texture. Caps range from less than 2 inches all the way up to 10 inches.
Oyster Mushrooms are both nutritious and flavorful. They are frequently used in Asian cooking, especially Japanese, Chinese and Korean dishes. Oyster Mushrooms are also stir-fried by themselves or used to enhance the flavor of soups and sauces.
