Deeply savory and earthy, Black Pearls contribute a rich umami presence to any dish they adorn, with very tender stems that allow the whole mushroom to be used to great effect. With a piquant, peppery aftertaste, we especially enjoy them when woven into a sauce or soup, as they have a knack for elegantly enhancing an otherwise simple preparation.
These fresh Black Pearls are cultivated by our partners in Upstate New York. A hybrid between traditional Oyster mushrooms and Black Trumpets, Black Pearls present an excellent combination of each ancestor’s characteristics. The depth, richness, and complexity associated with wild Black Trumpets paired with the relative ease of cultivating Oyster mushrooms make these a fantastic selection for home cooks and chefs alike.
