All Seasons Mushrooms

 

 

Selection, Care & Handling
for Home Use

 

Selection

  • Mushrooms with open veils have more intense flavor.
  • As a general rule, if a mushroom is larger, darker and has more open gills, that mushroom will have a deeper and more profound flavor and are usually better when cooked.
  • The smaller, paler and less open the mushroom is, the more delicate and subtle will be the flavor. 
  • Open caps and exposed gill tissue (White and Crimini) are not a sign of poor quality, but of maturity.
  • When choosing prepackaged mushrooms, select packages without visible moisture on the outside or in the pack.

Care & Handling

  • To store bulk/loose mushrooms, place in a paper bag or keep in the original package and refrigerate.
  • Whole white and crimini mushrooms remain fresh 5-7 days when stored properly
  • Sliced white and crimini mushrooms must be refrigerated and are best consumed in 3 to 5 days.
  • Whole Portabellas should hold 7-10 days; sliced portabellas should be consumed within 5 to 7 days.
