Chef Ronnie Nasuti is showcasing the local Small Kine Farm's Waimanalo mushrooms. Mushrooms are so versatile and can be used for so many things.
Mix everything but the crab and the mushrooms. • Fold in the crab so the pieces don’t break up to small. • Wash & dry the mushroom and remove the stem. • Stuff mushrooms and bake until golden brown…serve.
Keiki Portabella (above left) mushrooms (more commonly known as Crimini mushrooms) have a lighter flavor and crisper texture. Price for 10 pound case: $80
Tūtū Portabella (above right) large Portabella mushrooms are a minimum of 4” in diameter and rich and robust in flavor. Price for 5 pound case: $45They are not only are the only Portabella farm in Hawai‘i, but by using their our own compost and a high-tech pasteurization and growing process, they have been able to produce safe, high-quality mushrooms with better taste, texture and a longer shelf life than Mainland competitors…they even LOOK better.
Small Kine Farm sells its organic mushroom compost (also known as spent mushroom substrate or SMS) to farmers, gardeners and other agricultural companies. This nutrient-rich by-product of mushroom farming is widely used on the U.S. Mainland for gardening, vegetable production and weed control.
