Update: With further testing, I prefer Enoki raw or added add the end of cooking just to heat through. Otherwise the mushroom gets to chewy and stringy in texture. Still great flavour though.

The company is Enviro Mushroom Farm Inc., out of Burlington, ON, Canada. I was especially drawn to it because it is a product of Canada. USDA Organic, Certified by ECOCERT Canada. This is important to me, so that was a major selling point.

When Enoki is cultivated it is snow white in colour. In the wild Enoki is dark brown in colour. I can only assume that the wild Enoki taste is even better.

Enoki mushrooms are my new favourite variety of mushrooms. If you love the taste of the white button mushroom, you should try these. Button mushroom flavour, times 10. So good and fresh tasting that I was eating them raw, until I had to stop and remember that I wanted to try the Enoki in a few different dishes.

Rating: 4/5

Till next time,


This week has flown by far too quickly. A few extra hours in the day would not be frowned upon. I have been enjoying this warmer weather, but I pretty sure that it's done now.

House is up for sale, again. Hoping for a quick & painless sale. The process is annoying and tiring but when I get aggravated and impatient with the process, I have to remember that it's a means to an end.

My mom is going through chemotherapy again. This is the third time that the cancer is back, in a old and new place. I'm trying not to stress and worry because it won't do me any good. I'm just pushing ahead and taking things one day at a time. Or some days one hour at a time.


I'm concentrating on finishing school with good grades. Currently classes are going well. Java is the most difficult, but I will get through it. I'm thinking about business plans/employment plans. I'm trying to finish my book. I'm dealing with my mom's illness and all that it entails. It's a lot. At times like this I know why people have personal assistants, or just walk away. But it's life and I know this is making me stronger and preparing me for what the future holds.

Green, although it looks brown.

In the middle of all this, I'm sick with some virus. Which if I don't have time for. Being around someone with a compromised immune system is nerve-wracking to say the least. I'm drinking my green juice, taking Oil of Oregano, a spray or 2 of silver water, and my regular vitamins. But this is the first or second (I can't remember) time that am grateful for online classes. I can work from the couch, in pajamas, and have a nap in the middle of the day, if need be. Wow, this is a depressing post, but it's life. Hopefully things will pick up by next week.
