This summer we got The Mushroom Kit from Back to the Roots and had fun watching oyster mushrooms grow out of a box on our windowsill.
The kids were all over it when I brought home the box from Whole Foods, and opened up the back to get started right away. Every day they sprayed it with water from the included sprayer bottle and anxiously searched for mushrooms.
The first few to emerge were torn off and eaten on the spot by the lucky child. “I like raw mushrooms,” my daughter announced. “I don’t like them cooked, though.”
Then the kids went away to camp for two weeks and boy, did those mushrooms grow! There was great excitement when they returned home from.
We harvested the fungi, sliced them up, and ate them in a delicious tomato sauce over pasta.
