Mushrooms are great for you and they are full of vitamins. I love them and cook with mushrooms a lot. Read more about the health benefits of mushrooms.

How to select mushrooms
Look for mushrooms that are firm, plump, and most importantly, free from blemishes and bruises. There should be no visible moisture on the outside. Stems should be firm with a uniform color.

How to Store Mushrooms
Store mushrooms in their original package or a paper bag in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Storing mushrooms in a plastic bag causes them to deteriorate quickly.

Should I wash mushrooms to clean? Do no rinse mushrooms caps or stems with water! Mushrooms are like sponges and will absorb liquid quickly. Instead, just use a damp paper towel to remove excess dirt.

The trick to cooking these Sautéed Mushrooms is to avoid steaming the mushrooms as you cook them – too much steam during the cooking will give the mushrooms a rubbery texture.  Quick cooking over a very hot burner in a large pan, so the mushrooms are not overcrowded as they cook, will give you the best results.  You’ll have perfectly Sautéed Mushrooms that are moist and tender to the bite.
