I love a bargain and if something is on offer I buy lots then think about how to incorporate them into meals. Equally, if you get fruit and veg boxes delivered sometimes you can be stuck for what to make if you are sent lots of a particular item. Today I want to share with you some mushroom recipes with lots of ideas to use up mushrooms.
How to make mushrooms last longer
If you want to make them stay fresh for longer there are a few simple things you can do. Of course other than bulk cooking recipes with mushrooms!
Ensure they are not wrapped in any cellophane or plastic. This encourages them to sweat and expire more quickly.
Store them in a paper bag, this allows them to breathe and not sweat.
Store them in a cool dark place, the fridge is perfect but a cool larger cupboard can work as well in many cases.
If you can not use them all in time then drying mushrooms means they can be used another day, week or even month for something.
