Oyster mushrooms have a funnel-shaped cap in shades of brown. In nature, oyster mushrooms grow in a pile lined up one next to each other or one above the other like roof tiles. Their caps are brown, with a characteristic shell shape, slightly concave and always slightly lighter in colour at the junction with the stalk. In addition to being very mild in smell and flavour, they are often extremely large (some caps can be up to 20 cm in diameter)
Oyster mushroom can be used in many ways, but is especially good for soups, sauces and stews. It is very delicious pickled as well and it can be dried and deep frozen.
