Black Trumpet mushrooms range in color from brown, black, to grey and are identifiable by the lack of gills on the underside of the cap. The skin is thin, smooth, and slightly wrinkled with a suede-like feel. Inside the cap, there may be some small scales present, and the stem is also hollow and fragile. Black Trumpet mushrooms have a strong sweet, woodsy aroma and have a soft yet chewy texture with a rich, nutty, and smoky taste.
These are best suited for cooked applications such as sautéing, baking, or frying. Their delicate flavor can easily be overpowered by other flavors, so it is recommended to use the mushrooms by themselves and to place them in lighter preparations such as pasta, seafood recipes, soups, as a topping on pizza, or in a sauce. They can also be dried and stored for extended use or lightly battered and fried for tempura.
