You can grow delectable mushrooms in your house.
You can grow delectable mushrooms in your house, and it's easier than you think. Kits of several varieties can be ordered via catalog or online.
When the kit arrives, your mushroom block will look a little like a big marshmallow. The inside is filled with a mix of sawdust and oat bran. The mushroom spores are on the outer coating. Here's how the process of growing your own mushrooms works:
After the harvest, let the block dry for a week and then soak it in water for 24 hours. The next day, it'll be ready to go back under the humidity tent for another batch. Repeat this process and you'll get several harvests from just one kit.
After harvesting, the mushrooms can be dried for storage. When you're in the mood for a mouthwatering mushroom meal, just give them a good soaking and they'll be ready for cooking.
