Summer White Oyster

Pleurotus Ostreatus: 

Pleurotus Ostreatus is known as the white, pearl, beige, or grey oyster mushroom amongst a multitude of other names. Depending on where you are and who you’re talking to the white oyster species being referred to may be different due to the varying range of qualities.

Some ‘white oyster’ mushrooms are suitable for growing during the summer months, others are more suited to growing in winter. These impressive giants develop thick meaty caps when grown on hardwood and given plentiful fresh air.

Summer White Oyster mushrooms can easily replace button mushrooms in most recipes and pair well with many cuisines and flavors. Like all Oyster mushrooms, they retain water and may develop a viscous texture when undercooked. If you prefer a firm or dryer texture, continue to cook Summer White Oysters until their liquid has reduced and cooked off and they begin to brown. 

White oyster mushrooms pack a big umami punch with every mouthful. More subtle in flavor than pink oyster mushrooms but with a thicker and meatier texture. Ideal for soups, stir-fries and deep-frying. 

Summer White oyster mushrooms are best suited for cooked applications such as sautéing, boiling, roasting, or frying. They can be sautéed or stir-fried with other vegetables, added to pasta dishes, sprinkled on top of pizza, added to grain bowls, sautéed with eggs, boiled in soups, chowders, or stews, or cooked into risotto. They can also be sautéed and mixed with cream-based white sauces for added flavor. Due to their meaty texture, these mushrooms require thorough cooking to develop their flavor and an edible consistency. Summer White oyster mushrooms pair well with coriander, parsley, mint, basil, garlic, ginger, onion, sesame oil, soy sauce, bell pepper, red cabbage, broccolini, baby corn, leeks, quinoa, noodles, rice, and potatoes.
