Out of all the small varieties, we think these organic chestnut mushrooms are the tastiest, with a full, earthy flavour. They won’t shrink down too much as you cook them either – these proud veggies hold their shape.

Cooking

To prepare mushrooms, wipe them clean with some damp kitchen roll or a clean cloth. There’s no need to peel off the skins or discard the stalks.

Roast, grill or fry. In pasta sauces, stir-fries, risottos, soups - these chestnuts are very versatile. For an easy dinner, grab a hot pan, a dab of butter, some crushed garlic, throw in your sliced mushrooms and let sizzle. Fold in a few fresh herbs if you have them and serve piping hot on thick toast with a squeeze of lemon.

Storage

Mushroom varieties

Chestnut is the tastiest small variety of mushroom. For grilling, BBQing and stuffing, Portobello have a wonderful meaty quality.

Organic mushroom farmer

Many of our mushrooms come from The Organic Mushroom Company. They’re mushroom experts and know just what they’re doing. Mushrooms take 5 weeks to grow, then they have 3 weeks’ worth of harvesting time. The team then clears out the tunnels, ploughs the compost back into the fields (it makes a fantastic soil conditioner) and the cycle begins again.

Suitable for vegans.
