    To me they taste a little like chicken. The Milky grows on a drier substrate than many mushrooms and hence a lower moisture level. The stem of the mushroom is quite dense and the whole shroom has more body to it. This makes them ideal for cooking in dishes like soups, stews and curries. To use them in stir fries or on the BBQ, they are best boiled for 5 mins first to hydrate them and soften the flesh.

    Grain spawn preparation.



    I grow millet for my own purpose to make sure the grain free from pesticide.



    Soak the grain over night.



    Precook the grain with rice cooker.



    Spread the grain on a sieve allow it to dry with wind until having suitable moisture content. Then fill into bottle or pp bags and sterilize at 15 psi or 121 degrees C for 30 minutes.

    Hi there AP,

    Rice, sorghum, even corn if you like.
    Autoclave for the richer among us, pressure cooker for the lucky to find one, or oil drum and steam for the likes of me.

    Stay tuned. I have been learning a lot about these mushrooms over the last few months and now need to put the hammer down on volume. Growing in bags has proved difficult to control the moisture so I am moving to mass case the content populated substrate contents of the bags to form a larger mass. So far so good.
    These mushrooms keep extremely well so we are refrigerating them after picking and sell in 1/4kg bags. We have also sent some to customers by bus in styrene boxes on an ice bed without issue.

    The four-room guest house is separate from my house.
    There are two air-conditioned rooms and two fan rooms.
    But only one family or one group of four will occupy the house, no stranger.

    Good question. They have a texture somewhere between meat and vegetables. To me the taste is like chicken with a nutty after taste. Very large ones can develop a cumin like smell which if you like it then they are great in curries. If not, boiling the cut up mushroom for 5 mins will eliminate the spicy smell.

    A story broke today about four people from Ubon who died in one of those mushroom huts. It isn't in the English news as far as I can see. I guess they were spraying something and they couldn't see and the chemical got to them. I didn't realize mushroom growing could be dangerous. Anyways, keep your eyes open for the news.

    We do not fumigate with chemicals. We grow organically. Plus our mushroom beds are in an open pig sty and fully ventilated. But the deaths of that farmer and three workers was tragic.
