Oyster mushrooms get their name because they resemble the appearance of an oyster. They have three distinct parts: a fleshy shell or spatula shaped cap, a central stalk and long ridges and furrows underneath. 

All parts of this mushroom are edible. The stem can become a little more dense or woody as you get to the base. Slicing or chopping finer as you go will help give a more even texture while you cook. 


Blue Oyster Mushrooms have a subtle seafood flavor with hints of anise and a faint, earthy taste. Cooked oyster mushrooms bring a soft, meaty texture to many dishes. 

How to use the mushroom-

Oyster mushrooms are great for braising, sautéing, roasting, frying, grilling, and stir-frying. 

The Blue Oyster Mushrooms are very versatile and can be added to almost any dish. Some ways you can use these mushrooms are in soups, pasta, omelets, breaded and fried, pizza topping, grilled, mixed in with ground beef, and many other ways. 

They pair well with herbs such as parsley, thyme, and sage, potatoes, aromatics including garlic, green onion, shallots, ginger, and lemongrass, leeks, asparagus, bok choy, bell pepper, miso, heavy cream, fish, and meats such a beef, poultry, and turkey.

Our favorite way to store mushrooms is to chop them right away, store them in the fridge in a glass bowl with a wet paper towel on top. We’ve been able to use the mushrooms for 1-2 weeks. 

You can also keep them in the container you bought them in, in the fridge and they will last 3-5 days. 

The trick of long lasting mushrooms is letting them breathe while making sure they don’t dry out. 

They can be frozen either raw or in a sautéd or stir-fried state, as long as they are stored in an airtight container or a dedicated freezer bag.

You should never eat oyster mushrooms raw.
