Storage Tips…

  • Fresh shiitake mushrooms will keep up to 14 days when they are stored in the refrigerator.
  • The best way to clean them is to simply wipe them with a slightly damp paper towel or kitchen cloth. The mushrooms are very porous and if they are exposed to too much water they will absorb it and become soggy. Don’t clean mushrooms until you are ready to use them.
  • The stems of Shiitake mushrooms are often tough and should be discarded or used to add flavor to sauces and stocks for other recipes.
  • Uncooked fresh mushrooms do not freeze well, but once they are cooked, they can be frozen. Clean, trim and slice the mushrooms; sauté them in oil or butter and cool to room temperature. Package in airtight ½ cup or 1 cup containers and freeze. Thaw in refrigerator before use.
