An Incredible Array of Mushroom Delights
Our mushroom collection at Aroma Thyme is nothing short of extraordinary. We've carefully curated Lion's Mane, King Trumpet, and Black Oyster mushrooms, each offering a unique taste and texture profile. These mushrooms are more than just a culinary delight; they're packed with flavor and nutritional benefits, making them an excellent addition to any meal.
Lion's Mane mushrooms, with their cascading tendrils, resemble a lion's mane, hence their name. When cooked, they take on a tender, almost meaty texture with a delicate, seafood-like flavor, making them a favorite among vegetarians and seafood enthusiasts alike.
King Trumpet mushrooms are renowned for their firm, meaty texture and mild, nutty taste. They hold their shape well during cooking, making them perfect for grilling or roasting, and can easily become the centerpiece of any dish.
Black Oyster mushrooms, with their velvety texture and earthy flavor, add a touch of elegance to any recipe. They're versatile, working wonders in both stir-fries and soups, as well as sautéed as a standalone side dish.
A Simple yet Mouthwatering Preparation
At Aroma Thyme, we believe in letting the natural flavors of our mushrooms shine through. Our preparation is simple, allowing you to savor the true essence of these delightful fungi. A quick sear in a hot pan brings out the mushrooms' rich umami flavors, while a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) adds a luscious touch of richness. To complete the symphony of flavors, we add a splash of our incredible balsamic vinegar—a product of artistry and passion from the heart of Modena, Italy.
Supporting Local: Flowering Sun Ecology
We take pride in supporting local producers, and our fantastic mushrooms come from Flowering Sun Ecology, located right here in the Ellenville Area. By sourcing our mushrooms locally, we not only ensure freshness and quality but also contribute to the community and local economy. We firmly believe that the best ingredients come from our own backyard, and Flowering Sun Ecology delivers just that.
The Art of Italian Balsamic Vinegar
Our exceptional balsamic vinegar is a testament to the artistry of Italian craftsmanship. Guido, our dear friend and artisan, crafts this exquisite vinegar in Modena, Italy—a region renowned for its exceptional vinegars. Guido's commitment to tradition, patience, and attention to detail results in a balsamic vinegar that elevates our mushroom dish to a whole new level of gastronomic pleasure.
