Look For

Mushrooms with a firm texture and even colour with tightly-closed caps. Discoloured, broken and damaged mushrooms with soft spots should be avoided.

To Store

Store mushrooms in your refrigerator crisper where they can benefit from cool air circulation. Keep partially covered to prevent them from drying out, but never store packaged fresh mushrooms without venting. Paper bags are a good storage option. Use fresh mushrooms within 3 days.

To Prepare

Mushrooms can be eaten raw or cooked in salads, stews, stir-fry dishes, pasta sauce and so much more. Wash gently before use.
