Chestnut Grow Kit
********DUE TO HIGH DEMAND WE WILL NOT HAVE NEW INVENTORY UNTIL APRIL 1ST. YOU MAY STILL PREORDER YOUR KITS AND WE WILL NOTIFY YOU WHEN IT IS READY TO SHIP**********
Chestnut mushrooms (aka Cinnamon Caps) grow in bunches, similar to the Pioppino mushroom. Ours grow with a golden, almost-orange cap with the appearance of fresh snow dusted on top - truly a visual delight to grow since their original cultivation back in Ancient Greece and Rome!
Chestnut mushrooms are incredibly beneficial to the human body: they are anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antibiotic, and anti-tumor! Some research is even starting to indicate that Chestnut mushrooms, like our friends the Pioppino mushroom, can also slow the process of osteoperosis.
Important to note is that Chestnut mushrooms tend to absorb moisture a bit more than their counterparts in our collection. Just make sure that after harvesting, you refrigerate them a paper bag so they don't take on too much water and get "slimy" on top. If yours do get "slimy" in storage, don't worry! It's just condensed water, and they're still totally delicious.
They're fantastic in antipasto salads, pastas, sauces, quiches, casseroles, soups, and plain! They stay pretty firm when cooked, and sauteing will create crispy little caps. So wwap out those button mushrooms from Von's and replace with Chestnuts!
