A firm meaty mushroom, Lobster Mushrooms are known for their seafood-like flavor and bright orange-red color, which stays even after cooking. Use it for making faux lobster fritters, gently sauteed on top of spaghetti, or even a refreshing chilled "lobster" roll! Approximately 4 ounces of lobster mushroom(s) will be delivered in a brown bag.

A little bit more information on these beauts from Chef Iulian himself!
"Lobster mushrooms (Hypomyces lactifluorum) are actually two fungi: a parasitic fungus that grow on top of another mushroom.It changes the flavor and color of the mushroom completely. Their season is typically August to late September, when the weather is still warm enough to allow the fungus to spread and grow. A firm meaty mushroom, Lobsters are known for their seafood-like flavor and bright orange-red color, which stays even after cooking. Use it for making faux lobster fritters, gently sauteed on top of spaghetti, or even a refreshing chilled "lobster" roll. They are a firm mushroom, so they can be used in Thai style seafood curries. Lobster mushroom trim can be used to infuse melted butter, giving it an orange color and much of the flavor of the mushroom."
