About Oregon Mushrooms
Oregon Mushrooms has been sharing our passion for mushrooms with others via the Internet since our first eBay sale back in 1999. We started out smaller with a focus on high quality dried morel mushrooms but soon customers began asking after the availability of other types of mushrooms. As a result of this kind of demand, we’ve since expanded our high quality inventory to offer a variety of dried and fresh seasonal and cultivated mushrooms as well as unique mushroom-related specialty and gift items, such as black truffle oil and white truffle oil and truffle cream as well as truffle sea salt. All of our products are GMO Free! We do not believe in selling anything that is genetically modified. Most of our products are from the United States.View Store

White Winter Truffles Are Two Of Life’s Great Luxuries. The White Winter Truffle Market is the only one where every truffle is tested to guarantee quality and type. The flesh has a light whitish reddish brownish cast with white veins. Its aroma is reminiscent of garlic, shallot and cheese. It is only consumed raw, usually shaved over pasta or rice. It loses all flavor when cooked.
Any residual soil covering the truffle provides a protective layer that conserves flavor and aroma, and even allows the truffle to continue its ripening.
Of course, upon cooking, the truffle should be thoroughly cleaned. Besides general rules of food hygiene, the truffle has to be cleaned because its outer peel (peridium) is never thrown away. Like with the inner mass (gleba) the truffle’s peel has flavor and aroma.
Proper Way To Clean Fresh Truffles
• For starters always wash your hands before handling truffles. Truffles quickly absorb outside smells
• Rinse the truffle under cold running water for about 30 seconds. Rinse only a few minutes before use.
(If you have a large sized truffle only rinse the portion of truffle you intend to use)
• Gently brush the truffle with an unused tooth-brush, nail-brush, or any other similar bristle and soft brush.
• Pat dry the truffle with white absorbent paper towel.
• Slice paper-thin, grind, or chop the truffle if ready to commence cooking or serve meal. Differently, immediately store away the truffle.
