All mushrooms need to be cleaned before using.
Before cooking mushrooms or adding them to your favorite dishes,
you will need to give them a quick cleaning.

How to Clean Fresh Mushrooms

  • 1 (16 oz) container fresh mushrooms
Cooking Directions
  1. Using a damp paper towel, wipe each mushroom, one at a time, to remove any dirt or grit. 

    Do not soak mushrooms in water or rinse mushrooms under running water to remove dirt. Why? Because mushrooms absorb water like little sponges. Also, when sauteed, mushrooms won't brown nicely, if they're filled with water and mushrooms filled with water can also cause your dish to become watery.
