The gourmet mushroom kit is a simple, convenient way to grow your own Pearl Oyster mushrooms indoors on your windowsill. You can enjoy your own home-grown mushrooms any time of year in any location. The kit is also an interesting conversation piece, as the miracle of growth unfolds each day as new mushrooms sprout right from the box!
The mushrooms grow in a soil matrix using 100% recycled coffee grounds. While the coffee grounds make an ideal growing medium, there is no taste of coffee imparted to the mushrooms, nor is there any cafeine content in the mushrooms.
The kit will stay fresh in the box for months before you have to start growing your mushrooms. Make sure you keep your kit in a relatively cool area/room that doesn’t receive any direct sunlight (i.e., closet, bedroom). After you open it, however, nature will begin the growth process and you'll have to start misting!
Use these mushrooms in pastas, soups and stews, skewers, stir frys, salads, or as garnishes for roasts. These tasty mushrooms can be eaten raw or cooked.
Mushrooms, specifically oyster and shiitake, are currently grown world-wide on wood chips. Unfortunately, these wood chips are often formed through the destruction of hardwood forests in much of the developing world. However, coffee grounds are a perfect substitute substrate on which to grow these mushrooms; more importantly, using this “coffee waste” soil bypasses many preparatory processes required when using wood, resulting in a more efficient mushroom yield. Thus, this “trash” is in fact a valuable substance that can help save oak forests, and eliminate waste! This product supplier is on track to redirect over 1 million lbs of recycled coffee grounds by the end of this year!

Gift of the year?
By 12/13/11on All my reviews (4)
A very 'green' gift that also serves a purpose. I can't wait for my sister to get this. I think it should be the best green gift of the year! Good price too.
