Pickled King Oyster Mushrooms

Makes approximately 5 cups

  • 3 cups king oyster mushrooms cut into ¼” disks
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cups white vinegar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 tablespoons mustard seed
  • ½ bunch thyme

King Oyster Martini

  • Add the vodka, sherry, and brine to an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake well to chill. Double strain through a cocktail strainer and mesh cone strainer into a chilled Martini glass and garnish with a skewered king oyster disk.

Pickled King Oyster Mushrooms

  • Blanch mushrooms in salted water for one minute, then transfer to a bowl of ice water to stop them from cooking. Use a slotted spoon to allow water to drain before transferring mushrooms to a heat proof container. Next, bring remaining ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan. One boiling, pour over mushrooms and cover. Move to the refrigerator once cool and allow to sit overnight. Will keep for up to one month.
