Some cool information about our edible mushrooms
    #2945401 - 07/30/04 05:17 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

What exactly is a mushroom? Mushrooms are some of our most primitive foods. The mushroom part we see above ground is actually the fruiting body, which produces spores for the propagation of the underground mycelium base plant.

Mushrooms live off of the fine root structure of trees or decaying plant remains to supply the sugars and nutrients they need to survive. They are composed of chitin, not cellulose, which is typical of higher plants.

Why mushrooms tastes so good: Mushrooms contain glutamic acid, which is a natural flavor intensifier. Mushrooms create what has been defined as the ?Umami? experience, in normal language as the ?delicious? experience.

It has been recently discovered that our tongues have receptors that react only to glutamates, thus making ?Umami? as a recognized fifth taste.

Advantages: Mushrooms are low in calories and carbohydrates with lots of fiber, some vitamins, minerals and, most importantly, that great taste.

Store fresh mushrooms in a paper bag with a few holes poked in it for ventilation, in the coldest part of the refrigerator. Use within a few days to enjoy them at their peak.

Tricks of the trade: Mushrooms are like sponges. Clean the mushrooms by trimming the stems, then brushing away the dirt with a stiff, small brush, such as a toothbrush. If they are dirtier, rinse well under slowly running cold water, one by one, and immediately drain in a colander.

Never soak or submerge in water. Dry well in a lettuce spinner or on paper toweling.

The trick to concentrated mushroom flavor and cooking without steaming is to keep the mushrooms dry.

I question the effectiveness of additives; like calcium tablets compared to broccoli or spinich, one is a natural food and the other a rock.

I'm not suggesting that people stop taking supplements, I'm speculating that the digestibility of vitamins and minerals may be greater when obtained from a natural food source.
