Tempeh -- "Rhizopus oligosporus "
    #1415783 - 03/28/03 01:44 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Anybody here tried their hand at Tempeh?

I got some dry powdered starter from mushroompeople when I was there for the harvest festival a few years ago.

I never did anything with it, but I did eat some that I got from the summertown commune.

It was O.K. but not great or anything.

You mean growing it, or eating it. I have had it a few times. As far as growing it is not a basidiomycete, I think it is a zygomycete, the same order as Pilobus, that fungus that grows on cow shit and shoots off a spore packets in the direction of the sun using enormous tugor pressure.

Now that I think about it, I think that tempeh is actually textured soy protien that has been fermented and enzymatically altered by R. oligosporus. Iz'nt zhat vierd?

It's soybeans, and sometimes grains sprinkled with some white powder that grows and mattes it together into one solid mass.

I'm pretty sure it's a fungus.

I meant growing it. I had a packet of starter once, but I never did anything with it.

Tempeh is OK, either way. The fungus is not very fun to grow, zygomycetes are a lower, aseptate fungus. They do not produce fruit bodies. They grow quite quickly and can get fluffy that they lift the top of you petri lid off and get their fucking spores all over the place. They more of a nuisance to the mushroom grower than anything else.

I like tempeh! It is best sauteed in a bit of oil and soy sauce until brown. Growing it isn't hard, if my memory serves--it needs warm temps and acidified soybeans or acidified soybeans and grain. It grows really really quickly! I think the temps need to be around 30 C.
