Do you really know mushrooms?
Mushrooms are a very common ingredient, and everyone must be familiar with them. But people still encounter many problems when purchasing. Large and small packages say flower mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, etc. The products inside look similar, but the prices are very different. What is the real flower mushroom? How should we choose?
If you want to figure out what mushrooms are, you must start with shiitake mushrooms. Shiitake mushrooms are a large category, and the most common mushroom products on the market are shiitake mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms and shiitake mushrooms (also called xiangxin). Flower mushroom is the top grade among shiitake mushrooms, a kind of mountain treasure, also known as the"star of mushrooms". From the appearance, the flower mushrooms are the easiest to distinguish. There are cracked patterns on the umbrella cover, while the shiitake mushrooms and the mushrooms have no patterns.
After figuring out the difference between flower mushrooms and other close relatives, how can we buy high-quality flower mushrooms? All in all, the cultivation method determines the quality of mushrooms. There are two methods of growing mushrooms. One is the most common mushroom bag planting. The mushroom bag is filled with sawdust. The mushroom has a short growth cycle and a large output in the greenhouse. Because of this, the fragrance of this mushroom is lighter, the meat is thinner, and some of the low-quality ones have the rotten smell of sawdust. Another method is to cultivate with logs, which requires punching holes in natural wood and implanting mycelium, waiting for the mushrooms to grow slowly. Mushrooms cultivated in this way have a strong flavor and thicker flesh. Because of the high cost, time-consuming and low yield of log planting, it is expensive.
At present, the highest quality flower mushrooms on the market are the Tianbai flower mushrooms produced in Japan. The overall color of Japanese sky white mushroom is white, and the pattern is less obvious. The top-quality Tianbai mushroom has a unique light fragrance, it will not rot for a long time, and the taste is smooth. The authentic Tianbai mushroom is a log mushroom with a growth cycle of 18 months. Therefore, the mushroom meat is thick and solid, and the taste is similar to meat. It can be used to make all kinds of meat-like vegetarian food.
