Did you know you can buy indoor mushroom-growing kits and actually grow your own mushrooms? Seems these delicious little morsels thrive indoors in temps between 55 and 75 degrees. And they don't require any special lights to grow. (Mushroom spores can cause allergic reactions, so growing your own is not for everyone.)
I found out all about this in an article in today's Wall Street Journal: “The Science Project You Can Eat”.
And did you know mushrooms are low in calories and rich in antioxidants?
Evidently Whole Foods sells a variety of kits. You can also buy kits and learn more about starting your own mushroom patch at Fungi Perfecti.
What do you think? Will you give it a try?
