Epicurean Kentuckian: Joppa grown mushrooms just taste better
A new cash crop for Adair County growers come spring. Maury plans to have Oyster Mushrooms on sale at the Adair Farmers' Market. Maybe they'll make their way on the local restaurant menus, as well

News from the Adair County Garden Club
The Spring of 2012 the Adair County Garden Club held a couple of classes at the Trabue House to teach people how to grow their own mushrooms.
Yesterday I opened up the little area that I had my logs in and, much to my surprise, I had some Oyster mushrooms growing.
I cut a few off and cooked them in butter and onion salt and they were soooooo goood.
I cooked the stem and all because I have never had Oyster mushrooms and didn't know what I was doing. The stems were chewy but the tops were so tender.
Come Spring, you may see some of the mushrooms for sale at the Farmers Market here in Adair County. If you like to eat mushrooms and buy them from the grocery store, then you need to try them when they are fresh grown. What a difference. - melewi
