Pleurotus ostreatus
Here’s one good reason to love a cold, damp November day: Oyster Mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreatus) can appear by the basketful after a cool rainy spell. Various forms of Oyster Mushrooms can be found almost year-around in Illinois. Yet, there’s really nothing better than these savory, plump winter varieties.
When you feel like staying home on a chilly day in November, go out looking for fresh mushrooms instead. You’ll feel better.
