Some summer mushrooms and a short summer break

Posted

We'll be taking a short summer break from July 28th through August 4th. Our online order processing and shipping will continue during this time, however just about all our "front of the store" type folks will be on leave. The result: our Knoxville showroom will be closed during these days and phone support and customer service may be very limited. For best response, please send your questinos and inquiries by email to: orders@everythingmushrooms.com. Everyone will be back on board Monday August 6th.

chicken03-07.25.jpgWith the exception of the last few days, most of July has been pretty wet here in East Tennessee. A blessing, considering the state of drought in much of the country. We got a little skunked on Chanterelles earlier this summer, when things got hot and dry very quickly. We saw a short season, with much of it dying back. Even with the rains in July, we haven't really seen them recover... however we have been blessed with some great looking clusters of chicken of the woods. The mushroom pictured here were found less than 3 miles from our South Knoxville shop. Cathy has been busy testing new recipes and is honing up a good garden style veggie burger using the chicken as its base. Trim the tender outer rings of this mushroom for best eats, leave the tough center section for the stock pot. Treat it just like chicken. Grill it, sautee it, it will take flavors well. Goes great in crepes. Get out and find some while the gettin' is good!

We're off for the next week, so ya'll enjoy the last bits of Summer. We'll hit the ground running when the full crew returns and look forward to gearing up for the Fall and holiday seasons. New mushroom kits, cultures, spawn, and accesories will be making their way to the website soon, so please check back in with us frequently!
