Storage and Handling

Select Mushrooms without visible moisture on the outside or in the pack

To store bulk/loose mushrooms, place in a paper bag or keep in the original package and refrigerate.

Mushrooms with open veils have more intense flavor and are usually better when cooked.

To clean mushrooms, use a soft brush to remove any traces of peat moss or soil; or rinse quickly and pat dry.

Soaking fresh mushrooms or rinsing open veiled mushrooms may add excess moisture.
