World of the Enoki

This post isn’t about Lord Of The Rings, or Star Wars.  We are talking about tiny mushrooms, grown in clumps, with long spaghetti-like stems.

Native to China, Japan and Korea, Enoki mushrooms are a good source of Vitamin D, trace minerals, and B-complex vitamins. Enoki’s are eaten raw, or cooked.

Enoki mushrooms have firm, white, shiny caps. Another name for them is Golden Needle Mushrooms.

They are a delicate, mildly sweet mushroom, with a crunchy texture.  Enoki’s work well in soups, salads, and noodle dishes.
