What varieties of edible mushrooms can I find?
The use of mycological products in the kitchen was limited to a few varieties of cultivation, mainly used to cook mushrooms or cook oyster mushrooms. And if we talk about wild mushrooms, few cooks used any other variety than cooking niscalos in their autumn season. But today the number of edible cultivated species has multiplied, shiitake, enoki, shimeji, different varieties of oyster or thistle, ... and if we talk about edible wild mushrooms, the varieties used are no less than a dozen. Types such as boletus edulis, chanterelles, oyster mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, trumpet mushrooms, yellow trumpet mushrooms, morels and perrechicos, senderuelas, llanegas or negrillas to name just a few names of mushrooms, we can find them in season already in many stores and in some stores specializing in gourmet mycological products.
Which product is better? Fresh, dried or canned mushrooms?
Well, it depends a lot on the use you are going to give them and especially when you are going to use them. If it is in season, our recommendation is always to use fresh mushrooms. There is no other mushroom that matches them in flavor or texture. If you compare the texture of a fresh mushroom with that of a dehydrated one there is no color, but this does not mean that there are mushrooms that dehydrated retain many of their organoleptic characteristics. And this is very good when the months come when it is not possible to find a variety of fresh mushroom. Moreover, dehydrated mushrooms can be preserved very easily and for a long time, so if we keep the dehydrated mushrooms in a dry place without light, we can enjoy them for a long time. If we also want to keep even more dried mushrooms in a state as close as possible to the original, opt for a preserved species, such as chanterelles or boletus in oil, we will get almost edible seasonal mushrooms with a small decrease in flavor. A highly recommended option for cooking them
