Roselle may be used raw, dried or juiced. The fruit's tart flavor requires a sweetener of some kind, and it is successfully used like a cranberry in recipes for jam, jelly, chutney and even wine.
Barrel Cactus Fruit
The fruit of the Barrel cactus is best prepared in sweet applications, since its natural tartness lends itself well to a hint of sugar. Cook the fruit down with agave syrup to make a jam, jelly or a sweet and sour chutney.

White Hon Shimeji mushrooms are petite and have pale, smooth globular caps and ivory white slender stems that connect to a thick white, inedible base on which the mushrooms grow. White Hon Shimeji mushrooms have a piquant aroma, with a sharp umami (savory) flavor when fresh, and a mild and nutty flavor when cooked. The firm chewy texture softens when cooked. The mushroom's stem can become woody with age.
Hon Shimeji mushrooms are available year-round.
Hon Shimeji or White Beech mushrooms, are scientifically classified under the genus Hypsizygus which includes the species H. tessellatus, H. marmoreus, and H. ulmarius. In Japan, the mushroom is known as “white elm mushroom” and is referred to as buna shimeji which translates to “beech mushroom.”
In order for the human body to utilize the nutritional and medicinally beneficial properties of Hon Shimeji mushrooms they must first be cooked. An unpublished report by the National Cancer Institute of Japan indicates Hon Shimeji mushrooms contain anti-tumor properties. Other studies have found the mushroom to contain anti-fungal, antioxidant and anti-allergenic properties.
Hon Shimeji are best prepared cooked as their raw flavor tends to be unpalatably strong. The Hon Shimeji will hold its shape well when cooked and may be roasted, steamed, sautéed and pickled. Add to soups, stir-frys, omelettes and noodle dishes. Pair with seafood, citrus, grilled meats, white wine and fresh herbs.
The Japanese use the term “shimeji” to refer to at least eighteen different species of mushrooms. It is used as a generic term for mushroom and is often used with another word describing the mushroom. In Italy, Hon Shimeji mushrooms are referred to as chiodini or “little nails” and pioppini “cluster of trees.”
Hypsizygus are a group of edible mushrooms native to East Asia and North America. Wild Hon Shimeji mushrooms grow on hardwood trees, most often Beech trees, hence their common name. Cultivated Hypsizygus mushrooms grow on substrates composed of sawdust, grain and organic agricultural waste in a climate controlled dark environment for nutrition and uniform growth. The first cultivated Beech mushroom was patented in Japan in 1972. The mushrooms can be found growing across North America and up into parts of Canada. In the United States, they are more commonly associated with poplar trees.
