Summer of Food: Shitake Mushrooms
When my In-Laws lived here- they started a Shitake Mushroom, well, farm I guess is the best way to describe it. They bought the inoculum and put it inside oak logs- then irrigate them and the logs produce mushrooms- it's all very simple. These logs were started a while ago and they seem to be petering out. Nevertheless we found a few last time and they were delicious, I made up acream sauce for them- it would have been awesome with Bacon, but it was good without any meat too, always a bonus.
I used this recipe, with a few alterations- Milk instead of sour cream, and Ham broth for Dry Sherry.
