From grilled portobello to sweet shiitake, mushrooms have earned their place as the most respected fungus among us. It’s difficult to pinpoint when humans first began dining on mushrooms. Evidence suggests humans have been enjoying tasty toadstools since the stone age. We’re certainly showing no signs of slowing down. Not only to mushrooms provide a delicious treat they have nutritional benefits as well. Even more fascinating, mushrooms may well be instrumental in saving the honeybee population, so if you’ve got a hankering for the quirkily-shaped ingredient, we want to help you go full speed ahead.
