Mepkin Abbey Mushrooms

It is with great pleasure that we announce the arrival of our fresh and dried shiitake and oyster mushrooms in select grocery stores in the Low Country, including Whole Foods. Our dried and powdered mushrooms are available for sale in the Abbey Store. Our White Oyster Mushrooms are also featured in select downtown Charleston restaurants. Cooking with dried mushrooms is easy.  Just check out some of these recipes. Oyster mushrooms have long been cultivated in Asia for their medical benefits as well as excellent taste, and are a rich source of B-Vitamins.   Dried mushrooms have a concentrated and powerful flavor, so you need less of them per recipe.
