Store Well, Waste Less
- Store mushrooms in a paper bag in the refrigerator. Avoid airtight containers that can collect moisture and cause the mushrooms to spoil faster.
- For best quality use fresh mushrooms within a week. Canned mushrooms usually have a ‘best by’ date on the can. Dried mushrooms keep their quality for up to a year in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
- Dirt on mushrooms is normal. Clean mushrooms just before using. Use a soft brush or slightly dampened paper towel to brush off the surface or rinse very briefly under cold, running water and pat dry.
- Cooked mushrooms can be frozen. For best quality, use within 1 month.
