What's the best way to store mushrooms?
The best way to store mushrooms is to keep them in a paper bag in the refrigerator. The paper bag will absorb any excess moisture and help to prevent the mushrooms from becoming slimy. Avoid storing mushrooms in plastic bags or containers, as the lack of air circulation can cause them to spoil faster. Keep them in the coolest part of the refrigerator, ideally in the crisper drawer.
It's also a good idea to use mushrooms as soon as possible after buying them as they tend to lose moisture and become slimy over time. You can also store mushrooms in the freezer, for longer storage. Clean them, dry them well and put them in an airtight container or a resealable plastic bag. They can be stored for up to 8 months in the freezer.
It's important to note that different types of mushrooms have different storing preferences, for example, shiitake and morels should be stored in a paper bag, but button and cremini mushrooms should be stored in a plastic bag.
