Marinated Lobster mushrooms

16 Sep


My computer is on the blink it seems so here is my first attempt at a phone post, interested see how it will pan out. Above you see some Lobster mushrooms I’m salting which is one of the first steps in this Italian mushroom marinate recipe from ( — 17) check it out, I’ve tried this recipe with Russula mustelina and Lobster mushrooms last month and they both turned out great.


It is surprising more folks are not gathering Lobster mushrooms here on the east coast as they are quite common, usually in clusters of 3 to 5 mushrooms. You do seem to lose  some of the mushroom during cleaning as they have soil embedded in them though from this cluster after paring off what I didn’t want I still walked away with 2 lbs of choice wild mushrooms which I would usually dry and eat a small amount fresh though now I really like this mushroom pickled or in this recipe mentioned above from Hunter Anglar Gardener Cook where you salt, boil in vinegar, dry (which I’m going to check my dryer in a minute) then jar up and cover with spiced olive oil. Well I better go get’em.  Ciao

    Sounds delicious. I can only get lobster mushrooms dried, but perhaps after rehydrating them, this recipe would work. At least I don’t have to contend with the mud.

      I think you’re on to something good there Hilda, dried lobster mushroom brought around possibly with salt and vinegar, spice, olive oil is likely to produce at the least a nice quick pickle or marinate. I’ll have to try tinkering with some of my dried mushrooms in the winter months, thanks for sharing this interesting idea.
