Spring-y Recipes with Michigan Morel Mushrooms



Just In..

Mushrooms. Most people either love them or can do without them. In Michigan, a morel mushroom is a popular option that comes out in the spring. It brings many health benefits, in addition to a boost in unique flavor. 

This week, we’re celebrating mushrooms by sharing some of our favorite recipes for this tasty ingredient. Even if you’re not accustomed to cooking with mushrooms, these recipes may just make you want to give it a try. 

Let’s get together and cook!

April is "Earth Month"

We want to invite you to join us in taking steps toward sustainability this month. Reuse your Fustini's bottle to try a new flavor or refill a favorite oil or vinegar.  By doing so, you lower the amount of glass that needs to be produced as well as reduce the energy used in recycling your bottle.  And, we will give you $1 off your order for each bottle you refill, anytime!

Here's how to get your empty bottle ready for a refill:

CLEAN - empty and rinse your Fustini's bottle
SANITIZE - run them through the dishwasher
DRY - all moisture needs to be evaporated
REFILL - visit any Fustini's location to refill your bottle.  Because we are putting a fresh product into your bottles, it is imperative they are clean, sanitized and dry to keep the quality of your oil or vinegar

(Fustini's reserves the right to reject any bottles that do not meet the guidelines for safety and cleanliness.)
