My friend Linda always looks out for me. Last week, she called me and told me that she had some snow-white mushrooms growing up through the floor of her shed. Was I interested?
Of course I was interested. Linda and I went and collected the mushrooms. Because they were growing up through the cracks in the floor, they didn’t have the classic oyster mushroom configuration, and it took me a while to identify them. Just to be safe, I cooked them and had a sample, and then waited 24 hours before I served them. I was fine. They were oyster mushrooms.
I sauteed them with onions, and combined them with a Basque sheep’s milk cheese that our friends Mary Ann and Rick had given us. They made a lovely omelet.
