Pink oyster mushrooms are one variety of oyster mushrooms. They can also come in white, brown, golden, and blue colours. All fade to creamy grey when cooked. Pink oysters have a surprisingly short shelf life, and can disintegrate within 12 hours. Should you buy some, cook them immediately. Pink Oysters are delicate and their shelf life is somewhat short, making it tough for them to appear on grocery store shelves. The mushroom can be quite thick and meaty or delicate and thin, depending on growing conditions.
Fried Oyster Mushrooms make a surprisingly tasty side dish or snack. Flavoured with butter, salt and black pepper. Use them in sandwiches, pasta, rice or eat as they are pairing with cold beer.
