Mushrooms

Mushrooms

In Season: Available throughout the year Once thought to be quite the mysterious vegetable, mushrooms have been the subject of many myths. Believed by the Irish to be umbrellas for leprechauns and thought only edible if gathered under a full moon by the English, mushrooms were first appreciated for their rich flavor by the Greeks. Today, most mushrooms are produced in Pennsylvania and California. Several varieties are available, including the crimini mushroom, which is the same as the portabella mushroom, only smaller.
