'Shroom Tips:
* When selecting mushrooms, look for firm, evenly colored ones. Avoid mushrooms that are broken, damaged, or have soft spots, as well as those that seem damp, or smell of mildew.
* Store fresh mushrooms unwashed in the refrigerator for up to 3 days in a single layer on a tray covered with a damp paper towel. Do not cover with plastic wrap.
* When ready to use, rinse them with cold water and blot dry with paper towels, or wipe them with a damp paper towel. Use right after cleaning or they will darken.
* Do trim 1/4" off of the stem ends (or remove the whole stem of a shiitake mushroom.) Slice into even thicknesses for consistent cooking times.
  • Many mushrooms are at their peak in the fall and winter.
