preparing

 

No waste and no fuss makes mushrooms one of the easiest ingredients to prepare. Caps and stems can be used in recipes, and the less you handle them, the better.

 

  • Prior to use, wipe mushrooms over with a clean damp paper towel or, alternatively, rinse them quickly under cold running water and pat dry with a paper towel. Never leave mushrooms to stand in water or they will soak it up.

 

  • There's no need to peel mushrooms – why miss out on any of the goodness? But remember to handle mushrooms gently, since bruising detracts from the mushroom's appearance.

 

  • Mushrooms can be thickly or thinly sliced, cut into quarters, or coarsely or finely chopped using a sharp knife. If the recipe calls for caps only (for example, when making stuffed mushrooms), twist the stem loose or separate it using the tip of a knife.
