Named for their wild, fuzzy, lionesque fruiting bodies, Lion’s Mane mushrooms are exceptional, even among our wider catalog of phenomenal fungi. While many mushrooms evoke earthiness and umami, Lion’s Manes are more distinctly reminiscent of fine seafood, presenting the fine balance of briskness, sweetness, and juiciness normally associated with crab or lobster. Even this mushroom’s texture, with internal striations that manage to stay tender and toothsome rather than stringy or frail, reminds us of the best preparations of our favorite crustacean shellfish. Simply sliced into steaks and sautéed in butter, Lion’s Manes are an excellent centerpiece for dishes that may otherwise default to meat or seafood. Finally, if all of these culinary considerations weren’t enough, these mushrooms are beloved for their slew of health benefits, primarily their benefits to cumulative cognitive function, memory, and restfulness.
Fresh from our partners in the Hudson Valley, New York, these Lion’s Manes are meticulously cultivated, thoughtfully harvested, and delivered in an exceptionally clean and sturdy presentation, ranging in color from cream to a faint, rosy pink. Equally delicious no matter the hue, these pinker, more saturated Lion's Manes reveal that the mushroom was harvested from a colder micro-climate than its paler counterparts.
