So.

 

Wasn't sure where to put this thread. Here  in edible fungi? Or over in cookbook?

 

Anyway

 

I've been eyeing (or tounging rather) this possibility for some time now, on way back burner, but, given that life has decided I must move from my current living situation, and that some of one of my lions mane jars begun contaminating and the rest are fully colonized (started on 4/9) it seemed like a good time to harvest the jars, and begin the dehydrating process.

 

Now, the possibility I speak of is entirely due to the similarity between this

and this

So, naturally, the first thing I do after harvesting these guys IMG-0466.jpg

 

I immediately try this IMG-0479.jpg

 

I pan fried them in coconut oil with a bit of salt- the little ones turn out sort of nutty tasting cuz of the short grain brown rice, and 'chippy' in a nice way

 

(Yes that is tamari in a petri dish. Totally unnecessary btw- or rather maybe the salt on the Mycrice was unnecessary. Either or)

 

but the thicker ones stayed slightly moist on the inside, more like tofu, and have an almost cheese like flavor-

 

There are plenty of possibilities here. Overnight marinades? This is just the beginning.

 

Also, I'm thinking that if this is desirable on a larger scale (I only made 8 qt jars, and thats definitely not enough to munch for any period of time) that I'd want to find larger, thinner bags to colonize, as the shape of the qt jars makes cutting tempeh like slices slightly difficult.

omg this looks fantastic! What containers/bags did you use to get the flat bricks? How did you inoculate?

Inoculated quart jars on 4/9 with LC

 

Fruits grown out invitro, which took up more/less half the jar, which were then easily removed by sticking my hand inside the jar and pulling the mushroom out, then taking a scalpel, slicing the remaining bits into 1/4s, and shaking them out. 

 

I used a kitchen knife to cut them into slices.

 

The first photo is actually a photo of tempeh, which is soybeans inoculated with a culture which if I recall correctly is a form of aspergillus

This is great. I’ve also done this in a variety of ways... also makes for great high-protein vegetarian burger patties if you grind/crumble and mix with egg and spices.
