I often cook with fresh mushrooms. I usually buy the white button mushrooms either whole or sliced but like all kinds
I've read that you shouldn't rinse them because it makes them tough. You should wipe them with a dry cloth. I just cannot bring myself not to rinse them. They sometimes are dirty and wiping them takes to long and doesn't get them as clean.
What do you do? Rinse or Wipe?🤔🍄

I've always completely washed my fresh mushrooms! They are disgustingly dirty! Wiping just wouldn't do it. I've never had tough mushrooms because I washed them...must be an urban legend.

Since mushrooms absorb liquid, I do not rinse mine, but wipe with a kitchen towel or washcloth. Something that has a rough fiber which removes all the soil.
I used to rinse mine, but I changed my method. The mushrooms I usually get are pretty clean already.

@starpolisher There are a lot of really great flavorful 'shrooms out there. You can buy a mix most times hopefully in your locations.
And I rinse too.

Not washing mushrooms because they are supposed to absorb too much water, is a fallacy. I wash mine all the time with a very soft mushroom brush. They come out just fine.
