One of the easiest mushrooms to grow for beginners, experienced growers have used Garden Giant (also known as King Stropharia) as a learning tool for cultivating in hardwood chip beds or mulch.Perfect for gardening and permaculture projects, this mushroom can also be used to mulch the floors of livestock pens and chicken runs. The mushroom tastes like potatoes cooked in a mild red wine sauce. The stem is stringy like asparagus, so sautéing it lightly in a little salted butter and serving it on mashed potatoes or on toast with eggs is a treat!
