Cleaning mushrooms is annoying task. I was always told to wash each one individually, gently wiping the tops and bottoms with a damp cloth or paper towel. If you’re only using a few mushrooms, that’s not so bad. But, if you need a couple of pounds worth, then it’s just downright absurd!
What I finally discovered is that mushrooms can be plunged into a large bath of water, swished around to remove the dirt, drained and then toweled dry. And, you know what, they don’t become soggy masses of mushy mushrooms. They’re just clean mushrooms.
Any unused mushrooms I put in a brown paper lunch bag and store in the vegetable bin in the refrigerator. They last for days.
It’s much more appealing to think about using mushrooms and lots of them now that they’re so easy to clean!
