Mushroom Shares
The Mushroom Share this week is for the members that originally signed up. The New Mushroom Share members will start next week.

The Bulich Mushroom farmers info: Portobellos are a large mushroom and the fresh picked Portobellos have the root end still attached. It has some of the soil still attached the root. Cut the root off and clean the mushroom. If you are going to use them right away, it is OK to rinse and then pat dry. If you are not, brush the excess soil away and store in the paper bag. Portobellos are very meaty and are great brushed with balsamic vinegar and grilled. Remove the stem and slice. The stem is a bit woodier and will not cook as quickly as the cap. If you are grilling the cap, it will only take a couple of minutes on each side. Grill the smooth side first and finish with the gill side.
