Similar to how the white button mushroom is an albino version of the crimini, our Alba Clamshell is an albino strain of the Brown Clamshell. The versatile Alba Clamshell™, also known as Hon- or Buna-Shimeji, is distinguished by its mild shellfish flavor. It's quarter-size caps with 2 to 3 inch white stems retain a crunchy texture even after sautéing. We recommend a hot sauté to coax the most flavor out of this mushroom. The Alba Clamshell™ is a pleasant addition to seafood soups or bisques, stews, sauces, or stir-fries. They have a good shelf life, and the creamy white caps of the Alba Clamshell™ are attractive in produce and restaurant presentations. Certified organic by QAI. Crisp to crunchy texture, with an almond aroma, and shellfish-like flavor, the Alba Clamshell™ is excellent with fish and shellfish. It likes olive oil, garlic, tomato, red bell pepper, citrus juices, and thyme, and pairs well with Sauvignon Blanc.
Gourmet Mushrooms, Inc. is committed to growing the finest quality specialty mushrooms using sustainable practices. We have been pioneer growers of fresh culinary mushrooms since 1977, when we were the first to commercially cultivate shiitake in the United States. Our fresh mushroom division, Mycopia Mushrooms, has earned its reputation as the premier grower of top quality, flavorful forest mushrooms that are "no longer wild, but far from tame." Our mushrooms are grown on oak-based substrate in reusable bottles. After the mushrooms are harvested, the spent substrate is recycled and turned into compost that is highly prized by local farmers and wineries. Our mushrooms have been certified organic and kosher since 2005. Since we were founded, we have also produced a line of mushroom mycelial biomass products for the nutraceutical industry.
