Dried Black Trumpet Mushrooms

Black Trumpet Mushrooms are among the most tasting wild edible mushrooms. These mushrooms are small in size, averaging 2-15 centimeters in height, and have a delicate funnel or vase shape with a cap that has outwardly curled and wavy edges. Growing in small bunches or sometimes found individually, Black Trumpet mushrooms range in color from brown, black, to grey and are identifiable by the lack of gills on the underside of the cap. The skin is thin, smooth, and slightly wrinkled with a suede-like feel. Inside the cap, there may be some small scales present, and the stem is also hollow and fragile. Black Trumpet mushrooms have a strong sweet, woodsy aroma and have a soft yet chewy texture with a rich, nutty, and smoky taste.

Black Trumpet mushrooms are available year-round, with a peak season in the summer through fall. They are high in vitamin B12, which helps maintain normal brain and nervous system functions, and contain some antioxidants.
