Types of Mushrooms

White or button - excellent both raw and cooked. Widely available. Varies in color from white to light brown and in size from small to jumbo. Mild flavor intensifies when cooked and as the mushroom becomes more mature. Also available canned and dried.

Using Mushrooms

❁ Some wild mushrooms are very toxic. Be sure you eat mushrooms from a reliable source.

❁ Mushrooms can be eaten raw or cooked by many methods: sauté, roast, grill, broil, or microwave.

❁ Soak dried mushrooms before using.

Store Well Waste Less - Ground Beef

■ Refrigerate raw ground beef and use within 2 days for best quality.

■ Freeze raw ground beef for longer storage:

     • Divide into recipe-sized amounts.

     • Flatten into 1-inch thick pieces for quick freezing and thawing.
