About

Alba mushrooms are the white-capped strain of Hypsizygus tessulatus, a species native to East Asia but have become a common cultivator around the world. They are also known as Clamshell or Shimeji mushrooms. Their 2-3″ stems and dime-sized caps offer a crisp texture with a sweet and nutty flavor. It’s not common to overcook a mushroom, since most simply lose their moisture and reduce in size when cooked. Since Beech/Alba mushrooms are slightly crunchy, overcooking can cause them to lose their firm texture.

More Info

Proper storage and preparation are key to enjoying Alba mushrooms at their best. Store them in a breathable container in the refrigerator and use within a week for optimal flavor and texture.
