Notes on the use of tea tree mushrooms

Health benefits of tea tree mushrooms:

Tea tree mushrooms are flat in nature, sweet in taste, rich in polysaccharides, which help to improve immunity. Regular consumption of tea tree mushrooms can play an anti-aging and beauty effect. The lentinan in the tea tree mushroom can help cancer and tumor patients to better improve their physical functions, and the polysaccharide in the tea tree mushroom also has a certain anti-cancer effect.

Does tea tree mushroom need to be soaked:

It needs to be soaked in advance before cooking. It takes 1 hour to soak in cold water and 30 minutes in warm water. If conditions permit, it is better to soak in cold water, which can fully retain the nutrients and aroma of tea tree mushrooms.

How to choose tea tree mushrooms:

When choosing, pay attention to the color of tea tree mushrooms. It is best to choose the inside of the umbrella cover to be white, which means that the mushrooms are very fresh and tender when picking. Secondly, it depends on the color of the mushroom stalk. It is best to turn brown near the umbrella cover, and gradually lighten the color near the root. Such tea tree mushrooms will be relatively tender. If the color of the mushroom stem is the same, it means that the mushroom is old. Another point to pay attention to is the thickness of the mushroom stalk. If the mushroom stalk is too thick, it will taste old and not easy to chew.
