Lion’s Mane Mushrooms

The beautiful and mysterious Lion’s Mane mushroom (Hericium erinaceus) is native to China, Japan, North America, and Europe. It has a distinctive, icicle-like appearance and a beautifully sweet and rich aroma.

When cooked, the Lion’s Mane mushroom imparts an equally magnificent flavour described as somewhere between lobster and aubergine in taste with a consistency similar to crab meat.

With a subtle yet complimenting flavour profile, this magical little mushroom can easily be added to many everyday dishes to add a more diverse flavour to your dishes and is often used in the vegan and vegetarian communities as a seafood or pork substitute.

Having been used for thousands of years in Eastern Medicine, the Lion’s Mane mushroom is perhaps more commonly known for its medicinal qualities. It is a well-known nootropic food scientifically proven to protect neurons and enhance brain function thanks to its NGF (nerve growth factor) stimulating properties.

Our Lion’s Mane mushrooms are grown on locally sourced enriched untreated hardwood sawdust. We harvest our Lion Mane mushrooms just before full maturity to preserve flavours and nutrients; each one takes us between 45 and 60 days to grow.

Storage and Shelf-Life

Lion’s mane mushrooms are best enjoyed on the day of purchase, but when stored correctly in the fridge, they will keep for 3-5 days.

TIP: Mushrooms should always be stored in paper bags, ideally in the bottom of the fridge in the vegetable drawer, where it’s slightly warmer than the rest of the refrigerator. Place a damp paper towel in the paper bag with the mushrooms to stop your mushrooms from drying out.

Mushrooms should never be stored in plastic bags or containers where condensation can rapidly deteriorate the flesh of the mushroom, causing them to rot and spoil quickly.
