Wild Foraged Lobster Mushrooms from Arcadia Venture


Product Details

Despite the name and appearance, the lobster mushroom isn’t a true mushroom species. It’s the result of a parasitic mold invading and taking over a wild mushroom, turning it red and improving the flavor and texture of that fungi. To that end, the lobster mushroom is prized for its crustacean-like flavor, meaty consistency, and heartiness when cooking. Because the lobster mushroom only grows in the wild, sourcing it can be difficult, making them a rare, sought-after ingredient.

Comes in 4 oz portions, will come in a brown paper bag, and will be most delicious if eaten as soon as possible, but can be dried on paper towels near a fan and will keep in a sealed container of freezer for months.

Only available from August 31st to September 3rd!
