TIP OF THE DAY: Fresh Mushrooms Need Air

Mushrooms tend to come packaged in a plastic-wrapped box; or if you select them from a bin, you put them in a plastic bag.

Plastic is not good for mushroom health: There’s no air and the ‘shrooms can’t breathe.

If you’re not going to use them immediately, transfer the mushrooms to a paper bag. We retain the bags from small purchases—deli purchases to greeting cards—for that purpose.

Properly bagged, the mushrooms will stay fresh for up to a week.

See many beautiful mushrooms in our Mushroom Glossary.

And yes, you can rinse mushrooms under water or in a bowl. Just give them a brief bath: enough to loosen dirt but not enough to intake water. Pat dry with a paper towel.
