It isn’t really hard to guess why the Lobster Mushrooms Dried is so named. This parasitic fungus (it’s not technically a mushroom) grows on other mushrooms and eventually colonizes them with a meaty, red flesh that takes on the appearance of cooked lobster meat. In the process the zombified mushroom host gains both a striking appearance and delightful flavor.
The aroma when dried lobster mushroom reconstitutes, strangely, is a little aquatic and somewhat reminiscent of shellfish. The flavor makes the name even more appropriate as there are faint hints of lobster and certainly a taste of clam amongst its otherwise simple mushroom flavor. Use it in place of nearly any mushroom in a recipe. This cooking lobster mushroom for sale is a perfect addition to casseroles or plates of mac and cheese.Dried Lobster mushrooms have layers of flavor thanks to living off of multiple host mushrooms during their life span. The drying process captures those flavor qualities and preserves them. Lobster mushrooms are one of the most favored dried mushrooms as they reconstitute well and create an abundance of rich and fruity flavors. Their coloring is deepened, creating colors of coral, cinnamon and rust. Their flesh is granular and brittle when dried.
