If you’ve ever been hiking in the woods and seen grayish-white mushrooms growing on a log, they may have been oyster mushrooms. Grown in temperate climates all over the world, they usually appear with many fragile caps all attached to one another almost without any stem. Their mild, earthy flavor and delicate texture make them a prized, gourmet mushroom among the many wild varieties available in the market.
