Are you tired of your mushrooms turning brown before you can use them? I have a great tip.
As soon as you bring them home from the store, take them out of the package and put them in a brown paper bag, roll it up tight and put it in the fridge. They will last a little longer.
Also, you shouldn't wash your mushrooms, you should just wipe them clean w/ a paper towel or a kitchen towel.


  1. Really? Have you done that? I had never heard that about the paper bag and mushrooms. We're not huge mushrooms people here in the Wilhelmsen house, as you can imagine! :)

  2. Yes I do it every time. We at the Stromski house are HUGE mushroom people :)
    I actually found the tip a long time ago on the actually mushroom package, but I haven't ever seen it since then. The plastic from the packaging adds too much moisture, the mushroom soaks it up and makes it go bad.
