Oyster Dried Mushrooms
These large mushrooms grow on wood, with a color and shape resembling oysters. Their light flavor and texture makes them a nice match for seafood dishes, vegetables, and white sauces.
The flavor is also reminiscent of oysters, with a slight anise overtone. Mild and fleshy, these mushrooms are popular in soups and stir-fries. Although they are native to Asia and common in Asian cuisines, they are cultivated worldwide and can be used in may styles of cooking.
