|Food Buzz: History of Mushrooms|
White Silver Dollar mushrooms are medium to large in size with caps averaging 4-8 centimeters in diameter and are connected to thick, truncated stems. The smooth, rounded cap protrudes over the stem with curved edges and is thick, spongy, and white to ivory in color gradually developing a brown blush with age. Underneath the unopened caps, there are many small, light brown gills that produce brown spores that are hidden with a white veil and the white stem is thick, smooth, and edible. White Silver Dollar mushrooms are very mild with a crisp texture, and when cooked, they develop an earthy flavor with a tender, chewy texture.
White Silver Dollar mushrooms are available year-round.
White Silver Dollar mushrooms, botanically classified as Agaricus bisporus, are a larger, oversized version of the common white button mushroom and are members of the Agaricaceae family. White mushrooms are one of the most commonly cultivated mushrooms in the world, and the Silver Dollar mushroom is distinguished from its smaller counterpart by the size of its cap, often around the size of a silver dollar. Silver Dollar mushrooms are used interchangeably in recipes with the smaller white button mushroom and are favored for their large size by chefs to be stuffed and baked with varying ingredients.
White Silver Dollar mushrooms contain some antioxidants, potassium, selenium, amino acids, vitamin D, riboflavin, phosphorus, zinc, folate, and manganese.
White Silver Dollar mushrooms are best suited for stuffing, grilling, sautéing, or roasting whole. They can be grilled on skewers or stuffed with meats, cheeses, or vegetables and baked. They can also be added to tomato-based sauces, gravies, stir-fries soups, stews, baked into tarts, sautéed with wine and fresh herbs, sliced as a topping on pizza, cooked with artichokes, chopped into ceviche, or baked into mushroom bread. White Silver Dollar mushrooms pair well with spinach, gorgonzola, mozzarella, parmesan, pecorino romano cheese, tomatoes, carrots, celery, potatoes, garlic, shallots, onion, ginger, fennel, sage, parsley, basil, meats such as beef, pork, or poultry, eggs, seafood, balsamic vinegar, white and red wine, rice, pasta, and orzo. They will keep up to a week when stored loosely in a paper bag or stored in a bowl covered with moist paper towels to prolong freshness in the refrigerator.
White Silver Dollar mushrooms are classified as Agaricus bisporus, which is regarded to be one of the most cultivated mushrooms in the world. Representing over forty percent of cultivated mushrooms, white mushrooms are adaptable and can grow on every continent except for Antarctica. White mushrooms are valued for their nutritional properties and are used worldwide in many different cultures to help improve digestion, provide a high amount of protein for hunger sustainment, and to protect and improve the immune system. These mushrooms have also been shown to act as a prebiotic to help improve the bacteria levels in the stomach.
White button mushrooms have been growing since ancient times and were first believed to have been cultivated in France by French botanist Joseph Pitton de Tournefort in 1707. Cultivation spread and white button mushrooms were then produced in the United States at the turn of the 20th century in Pennsylvania. Today White Silver Dollar mushrooms are primarily cultivated and are widely available at supermarkets, farmers markets, and specialty grocers in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia.
