Mushroom Tips, Hints, and How-tos

Never store mushrooms in a plastic bag because they quickly become slick and unpleasant. They keep best in a brown paper bag (with the top folded down) because the brown paper absorbs the moisture that the mushrooms produce.

You can tell if mushrooms are fresh because their caps are completely closed, with no gills showing.

To keep mushrooms white while you saute them, either add a half teaspoon of lemon juice to each half cup of melted butter or, if you are sauteing whole caps, saute the tops of the caps first and fill the cap with lemon juice while the top is sauteing.
