Lion's Mane Mushroom Grow Kit
Lion's mane mushrooms contain compounds that stimulate the growth of brain cells and protect them from damage caused by Alzheimer's disease.
Not only is lions mane packed with stuff that helps with your brain health, it's also known as the lobster of mushrooms because it's so delicious to eat.
Most people haven't tried fresh lions mane because it's very difficult to find at the grocery store, largely due to its fragility.
This little kit allows you to easily grow your own at home!
Our grow kits have 6.5lbs of certified organic mushroom mycelium in them, enough to grow 3+ pounds of mushrooms across multiple flushes. Just pull the circle off the back of the kit, mist it 2-3 times a day and you'll have your own crop of lion's mane in 7-14 days. All kits come with a misting bottle, humidity dome and detailed directions in the top of the box.
1/2 LB Hodgins Harvest mushrooms
1-2 TB butter or olive oil
2 TB white wine or sherry
Our favorite way to cook all wood-loving species of mushrooms here at Hodgins Harvest is a simple saute recipe we call Cook 'Em Crispy. You can follow the recipe below for a more in-depth explanation.
Our grow kit substrate is made from a mix of hardwood sawdust and organic soybean hulls. There is a small amount of grain spawn in each block which may contain one or more of the following grains: millet, rye and sorghum.
Heat butter or oil over medium heat. Slice the mushrooms or shred them apart with your hands into small pieces. Sprinkle lightly with salt and sauté for 10-20 minutes. Allow most of the moisture to cook out of the mushrooms until they’re brown and crispy around the edges. Add the white wine/sherry and cook until the added moisture evaporates. Enjoy!
After you receive the kit, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to 6 weeks or up to 2 weeks at room temperature.
Our grow kit boxes contain a block of mushroom mycelium, illustrated directions, a humidity dome and a misting bottle. Mycelium needs light, humidity and fresh air to grow mushrooms. So to use our kits, you pull the circular cutout off the back of the box, cut an "X" in the plastic underneath and create a humid environment around the cut.
You can use the included misting bottle and humidity dome (which is made from plant-based plastic) or you can set up a humidifier next to the kit for a lower-maintenance option. Within 7 days, you should start to see some growth and within 12-18 days you should be harvesting your first crop of lion's mane mushrooms!
We guarantee that'll get at least one crop of mushrooms out of our kits but it's possible to get much more. After your first harvest, replace the humidity dome and continue giving the mycelium a humid environment. Some of our customers have gotten up to 4 additional harvests from their kits.
