A word about fresh mushrooms. The readily available cultivated white mushrooms have a mild, earthy favor. The cap ranges in size from 1/2 to 3 inches in diameter and in color from white to pale tan. Those labeled “button mushrooms” are a smaller version of the cultivated variety. These common mushrooms are available year-round but their peak season is in the fall and winter. They’re sold in bulk and 8-oz packages.
Look For & Storage
Look for those that are firm and evenly colored with tightly closed caps. If all of the gills are showing, the mushrooms are past their prime. Avoid mushrooms that are broken, damaged, have soft spots or a dark-tinged surface. Fresh mushrooms should be stored with cool air circulating around them. Therefore, they should be placed on a tray in a single layer, covered with a damp paper towel and refrigerated for up to 3 days.
