Mushroom Tips

When buying unpackaged mushrooms in bulk , it is often a challenge to keep them fresh until ready for use.  Following are a few tips regarding mushrooms.  While you’re thinking about mushrooms, check out the Stuffed Portabella recipe!

TIPS:

Choose the most fresh and firm mushrooms you can find in the bin.

Don’t wash the mushrooms until you are ready to use them (encourages mold).

Store the loose mushrooms in a paper sack.  Separate layers of mushrooms with a piece of paper towel if you have a lot of mushrooms.  Fold over and close the bag (may have to secure with clip)

Store in the coldest part of your refrigerator.  34 to 40 degrees is optimal.

Speaking of mushrooms, here’s another hint:

Did you know that the taste and texture of a properly grilled portobello mushroom has been compared to eating a steak? Next time you’re at the grocery store, pick up a portobello and give it a try.

If you are grilling, heat the grill and prepare the mushroom by washing, rinsing and drying. Place the portobello, stem side down, (stem is usually removed), on the grill and brush the top with olive oil, Italian dressing or butter. Grill for about four minutes, then flip, brush the other side and continue cooking for four to five more minutes or until tender. Bon appetit!
