Sure, we’d all love to be able to give our fungus-loving friends a nice, big truffle for the holidays (or even this $1 million beauty), but that’s not really the most economical gift idea. So to cure our mushroom cravings, we’ve found the next best thing.
The Oyster Mushroom Log from Williams-Sonoma is a hardwood log pre-inoculated with oyster mushroom spores. Just keep it damp and stored in a dark place, and the delicious mushrooms will sprout every two months for up to three years.
The $29.95 hand-cut log allows you to grow the oyster mushrooms indoors or out thanks to visible drill holes covered in cheese wax. You can then enjoy their mild flavor and delicate texture any time. The log is a foot long, weighs four to seven pounds, and can be stood upright or laid horizontally. A metal plaque on the underside states the spores’ inoculation date.
