At Edible Garden we purchased a mushroom growing box from Fungi Futures.
What we want to know is how easy are they to grow and will they taste of coffee?! To find out follow here…
Day 1 removed bag, cut slots and soaked!
Day 2 drained and kept looking…..no sign of growth!
Day 3….Is there any change?
Day 4 to day 11
We’re spraying and looking, spraying and looking we’re just about to give up when we think we can see something changing.
Day12,Yes, there is a change!
Day 13 So exciting! Look! Look! Look!
Day 15. Looking good.
Day 16, This is what we have been waiting for, mushrooms ready to eat…lets see what they taste of.
I have picked them and fried them gently and they taste of……….drum roll……..mushrooms! Not a hint of coffee taste.
Am I disappointed? Well it would have been interesting if they had been coffee flavoured but on the whole I think I like mushrooms that taste of mushroom. What about you?
To try this yourself have a look here at the different grow kits available at Fungi Futures.
