Pom Poms: These mushrooms are quite delicate. They are a soft, white sphere. Unlike other mushrooms, they do not have a stem, but rather have soft spines. There are a variety of names they go buy, such as old man’s bear or monkey’s head. They are a milder version of mushroom. They are a bit on the sweet side as well. And the texture is unique as well. You can expect it to taste and have the mouth texture of lobster, for example. Because they can breakdown, they are often a key component in sauces, but you can also serve them as appetizers. With a bit of melted butter, they can work for a vegetarian steak, as well.
