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.
