Lion’s Mane Mushroom Kit – Hericium erinaceus. This mushroom, also called Hericium, Pom Pom Blanc or Beard mushroom, forms pure white, finely toothed round mushrooms which have always been a rare, prized find in the woods. the Lion’s Mane has a very firm texture and a flavor reminiscent of fresh crab meat. This mushroom is fantastic as tempura or can compliment anything from a white sauce to a marinade. When baked whole Lion’s Mane makes a dramatic garnish or an unique appetizer. The feathery condition is best preserved by brushing with melted butter and baking in a very hot oven for 3-5 minutes. It is also delicious shredded and tossed into a hot seafood pasta. These Kits can be held for 1 or 2 weeks, but are designed to be started when received!
