We are supremely lucky here in our area to have a wide variety of things grown, produced, and created by our local communities. Last summer, a new mushroom farm opened up down the road. All summer I stopped at the roadside self-help stand and purchased mushrooms. Last week I ordered a big box so I could make stroganoff, mushroom soup, and a few other delicious goodies.
These beauties are grown by Mannafest Mushrooms, which is located in the next town over. They are not your normal grocery store mushrooms, but that’s fine with me. I’m happy to cook them individually to try them and then add them to all the mushroom recipes I have. I’m always happy to find new sources for things we typically purchase at the grocery store.
Have you discovered any great new sources for food, plants, or other items in your area?
