Description

Lion's mane, or Hericium erinaceus, is one of the more interesting looking types of mushrooms out there. In place of the traditional mushroom cap is a large clump of teeth, which are spine-like structures a few millimeters long.

When cooked, lion's mane has a seafood-like flavor without being too overpowering. Many liken it to the taste of shrimp or lobster. Thus if you love the taste of seafood but you're a vegetarian or allergic to shellfish, try spicing up your next meal with lion's mane. The trick to preparing all edible mushrooms in the Hericium genus is to cook them slooowly. These are tough and watery mushrooms that need longer periods of heat to cook off moisture and make them chewy. The extra cooking time is well worth it.

Other names associated with this mushrooms are Monkey Head, and Pom Pom

Cooking Ideas

Lion’s mane mushrooms can be sauteed, broiled, grilled, or added to any recipe that requires mushrooms. These mushrooms are especially tasty when served over fish or combined with fresh vegetables.

Directions on how to Rehydrate

To rehydrate or reconstitute dried mushrooms, place desired amount into a bowl covered with warm water and let dried mushrooms soak for 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes have gone by, gently lift the mushrooms out of the water using a strainer. The mushrooms should be clean, plumped and ready to use.

How to Store

It is very important that dried mushrooms are stored properly to insure long term and maximum freshness. Place the mushrooms into either a plastic or glass container with a tight fitting lid. Our first recommendation, though, is freezing or storing in a refrigerator or freezer. Place the dried mushrooms in a clean, tight sealing freezer bag. The reason for maximum cold storage is because heat and moisture are the greatest enemies. The mushrooms should keep well for six months to a year.
