How to Store Mushrooms
Mushrooms can quickly become slimy and brown if they are not stored properly. One of the best ways you can insure that mushrooms are stored well and last a longer amount of time in your fridge is to not slice them before you need them. Mushrooms will rapidly go bad this way the same way apples and pears will if exposed to air. Instead, wash your mushrooms under cool water and pat dry with a paper towel. Place them in a paper bag for maximum longevity.
You can also freeze mushrooms if you plan on using them in sauces or soups. The best kinds to freeze are the cultivated ones you find in the store because wild mushrooms often have too high of a moisture content to lend themselves to freezing well. To freeze mushrooms, slice them and pat as dry as you can. Place them on a cookie sheet in a single layer and allow to freeze solid before placing in bags.
