Mushroom Care

How to Select:
- Purchase mushrooms that are firm with a fresh, smooth appearance.
- Surfaces should be dry, but not dried out, and appear plump.
- A closed veil under the cap indicates a delicate flavor, while an open veil and exposed gills mean a richer flavor.

How to Store:
- Mushrooms keep for up to a week in the refrigerator.
- Keep mushrooms in original packaging until ready to use.
- Once opened, store mushrooms in a porous paper bag for a prolonged shelf-life.
- Avoid storing in airtight containers - they cause      condensation, which quickens spoilage.
- Fresh mushrooms should never be frozen, but frozen sauteed mushrooms will keep for up to one month

How to Clean:
- Brush off any dirt with a damp paper towel or fingers.
- Rinse fresh mushrooms only briefly under running water and pat dry with a paper towel. Never soak them, as they absorb moisture.
- Trim the end of the stem before using.
