Straw mushrooms are, as the name implies, grown on rice straw beds. This mushroom is very popular in Asia, especially in Thai cuisine and has a mild flavor. The pickled Spring Happiness Straw Mushrooms are preserved immediately after harvesting so that their full flavor remains. Straw Mushrooms can be used for all kinds of one pot meals, soups (e.g. tom yum gung), stews and vegetable curries.
