There are many types of mushrooms available today, each with their own shape, texture and flavor. Mushrooms with open caps have a stronger taste while closed-capped button mushrooms have a milder taste.
Mushrooms should be firm and plump with tight compact caps. To store, keep them loosely covered so air can circulate. Do not store in plastic bags. Do not clean mushrooms before storing.
Mushrooms should be cleaned removing dirt with a damp cloth or washing off under running water. Mushrooms can be stir-fried, stuffed, sautéed, marinated or served raw.
