									Mushrooms for Mom: Food, Fun, and Flavor with Shiitake Log Kits and Gift
Baskets
Spring is the prime fruiting season for Shiitake Mushrooms. Shiitake mushroom log kits are right
on target for Mother's Day, offering the fun of growing mushrooms at home, the deep flavor of
log-grown mushrooms, and the impressive nutrition, health benefits, and "secret" gifts of
shiitakes. The Mushroom Lady, Sandra Williams, talks about how shiitakes grow.
(PRWEB) April 28, 2010 -- "Mother’s Day is perfect timing for giving a shiitake gift log kit," according to the
Mushroom Lady, Sandra Williams of Lost Creek Mushroom Farm. "Right now the world’s second-most favorite
mushrooms are popping out of hardwood logs on shiitake farms across America. This is their natural ‘fruiting’
season, browning under the springtime sun, and bringing forth their gifts of high-protein, low-fat deliciousness,
impressive health benefits, and," she added, 'their magical gift of joy."

 "Open the box, soak the log in ice water and harvest is only 6-10 days away. The ice water triggers the fruiting
cycle. Then you let the log rest, soaking every two weeks in room-temperature water for two months. With two
logs, you can alternate fruiting and get shiitakes every month. It’s easy and fun.’"

 If Mom loves mushrooms or gardening or gourmet cooking, then a shiitake mushroom log kit and a Shiitake
Sampler Cookbook are right on target. She’ll have fun watching one of the world’s most flavorful mushrooms
grow right in her living room. She'll enjoy cooking with the highest quality, organic gourmet shiitakes. "They like
light, not dark; and they’ll grow every two months for years," Williams said.

 With Lost Creek Mushroom Farm’s unique Shiitake Gift Basket, which includes a little 6-inch ‘Shroomie, Mom
can have it all. "She can enjoy shiitake soup and dips right now and harvest her own fresh mushrooms inside of
two weeks," Williams explained.

 "It’s a good bet Mom hasn’t tasted the deep flavor and the meaty texture of shiitakes grown on real logs," she
continued. "Shiitakes from the grocery store are generally grown on blocks of sawdust and lack the flavor,
density, and health benefits of shiitakes grown on logs."

 "They’re good for us in their nutritional and medicinal benefits," the Mushroom Lady said, speaking of the
shiitake’s well-known ability to stimulate the immune system, fight viruses, and lower cholesterol. "In olden
times shiitakes were used to relieve grief. They especially help us heal from old griefs of the past, because these
amazing mushrooms stimulate and enhance our sense of joy."
