Cleaning Mushrooms After Harvest


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure that this is typically as issue, but since a good deal of my mushrooms were growing along the surface of the casing, some of the ones I picked were rather dirty. I washed them in the sink with cool water, gently scrubbing off dirt. I forgot that the chlorine in tap water bruises the mushrooms, but I wanted to make sure it didn't negatively affect the product in any other way. I also wondered if anyone else cleans their shrooms and what is the best recommended method.

I just wipe off the casing on the base of the stem. no need to wash them..;. your washed one should be OK if you dry them fast and they do not stay wet

I threw them right into the dehydrator after, so I guess it'll be alright this time. Quick, knowledgable replies, as always. Love this forum!
