Luscombe Farm shop, our very own vegetable supplier, open on Saturday mornings from 8.30am – 12.30, have some new produce to boast about. As well as having some super fresh vegtables straight off our surrounding Stokeinteignhead fields, they now stock a new supply of mushrooms for sale: Shiitake, pink oysters, yellow oyster, king oyster. Yes mushrooms, not oysters!
Get there early to be in with a chance of grabbing these beauties and “the world’s your oyster!” Ha – get it??
It’s almost such a shame to chop these beauties up, but what a tasty treat they make to warm up a dull dreary winter’s day.
Lovely, sliced and fried in butter with some french crusty bread or you can try your hand with making a risotto or mushroom penne pasta.
I made a mushroom stroganoff with mine and if you want the recipe, please go ahead and use.
