    Facts about Mushrooms

    How to Clean:

    Before you cook or store your ’shrooms, you’ll want to get them nice and clean. Dampen a cloth or paper towel and then wipe each mushroom clean. If they’re super dirty, give them a light rinse before gently patting them dry with paper towels. Be sure not to soak mushrooms, as they will become soggy.

    Storing Wisdom:

    If you buy mushrooms pre-packaged, they’re safe to stay in the package until it’s time to clean and cook them. If they’re not pre-packaged, store them in a paper bag or a damp cloth bag and place them in the refrigerator. Both options will allow them to breathe and stay firm until you’re ready to cook them.
