How to Prepare King Trumpet Mushrooms

No base, no preparation

You don’t have to trim the base of a King Trumpet mushrooms because it is trimmed before being packaged. You can cook the entire King Trumpet mushrooms while you can cut off the tip of the mushroom when you found residue of the base or any stains or dirt.

Use Your Hands

You can easily break apart a King Trumpet with your hands. The thickness can vary depending on your preference and the recipe. By using your hands instead of a knife, the surface of the mushroom will soak up more flavor and cooks faster.

Thick cut for crispy chew

King Trumpet can be enjoyed in many different ways by varying its thickness. With a thick cut you can enjoy a crispy chew, but we recommend slow cooking as the best option. Simmering will not make the mushroom soggy. The mushrooms can increase the volume of the dish. Cut the caps into 4 pieces.

Cut will make a difference

One of the most appealing aspects of the King Trumpet is the crispy chew, but when you cut them in rounds, they have a meat-like tenderness. Cut the King Trumpet to break down its fiber, making it softer and easier for elders and children to chew. You can also use King Trumpet mushrooms as a meat substitute to decrease calories on a plate.

What are the white powders around the caps?

These are spores of the mushroom.  The mushroom is still alive and fresh even after harvest and packaging. Sometimes they generate spores inside package but there is no problem with the quality of the mushroom.  Please feel safe to cook and consume.
