But when the farmer found out that my dinner wasn't for a week, he refused to sell the mushrooms to me. He warned that you have to treat mushrooms as you treat raw fish: they need to be eaten within a day or two. Gotta respect that.
So, I'll be heading up there again when we get closer to the dinner. Can't wait to cook with some freshly-harvested canary oyster mushrooms, shitakes, blue oysters, bear's head, and king oysters! Straight from the growing logs to my table all in one day.
