Re: Cooking with fresh mushrooms?πŸ„

I put mine in a lock n lock with a few damp paper towels in between and shake it to clean them off.

Thanks for the replies. I will continue to rinse them! (I would have anyway...was just curious as to what others do.)

Re: Cooking with fresh mushrooms?πŸ„

I only buy whole mushrooms.  Cut mushrooms do not take to being washed in water too well.

 

I put the mushrooms in my salad spinner basket and take it to the sink and rinse them off with my hand held sprayer as well as I can.  Then I replace the basket into the spinner and spin away.  Most of the mushrooms are pretty dry after that. I place them on a paper towel and blot.  I use them right away.

 

We love mushrooms and I use them a lot.  Yummm.

Alton Brown says it's okay to wash them.
