Clare Jones: Hi, I am Clare Jones from Mushrooms Canada. Today, I’m going to talk about the different varieties of mushrooms that are available on the market. First of all, we have the white mushroom; they come in small or button, medium or jumbo size. The flavor of white button mushrooms is woodsy and they become stronger with cooking. The possibilities for using white button mushrooms are almost endless, they could be used in soups, salads, entrées, and they make a great side dish for any meal.
Next we have the brown or crimini mushroom; it’s similar in shape and size to the white mushroom, but it’s firmer to the touch. Crimini mushrooms make a great substitute for white mushrooms and their flavor is meaty and earthy, and more intense than the white mushroom. They can be used in entrees, appetizers or soups and again make a great side dish with any meal. Next we have the portabella mushroom. Portabellas are actually fully grown brown mushrooms. Since, they are growing to such a large size, portabella is loose and moisture and that gives them a meaty texture and an earthy flavor. Portabellas could be grilled, baked or fried; they make a great appetizer or side dish or an entrée. Because of their natural meatiness, they also make a great meat substitute with no cholesterol, sodium or fat.
Next we have the Shiitake mushrooms. Shiitake mushrooms have a fleshy brown cap with a soft spongy quality. They give you a woodsy meaty flavor and texture when cooked. Shiitake mushrooms are commonly used in stir fries and pasta meals. Next we have the Oyster mushroom. Oyster mushrooms have a funnel shaped cap and gills, running of the central stem. Oyster mushrooms have a delicate mild flavor and a velvety texture. They can be eaten raw or cooked; they make a great compliment to chicken, seafood or pork. Finally, we have the enoki mushroom. Enoki mushrooms have a long slender white stem with a firm cap. They have a mild delicate flavor with a slight crunch. Enoki mushrooms can be eaten raw or cooked and they are commonly used in Asian cooking, but they are also great in salads, pasta sauces, soups or sandwiches.
Mushrooms can be purchased in a variety of ways, either in bulk, cello wrap trays, sliced or triple rinsed. When storing mushrooms, always keep them cold; keep them in a refrigerator in a paper bag, don’t keep for five to seven days. Remember, Canadian mushrooms are fresh, simple and good, you can find more information on storage, handling and some great recipes at mushrooms.ca.
