How To Clean Prep and Slice Mushrooms


I do not wash my mushrooms in water. Mushrooms are like sponges and soak water up, often making them mushy and tough.

I use a paper towel wrapped around my finger and quickly and lightly wipe the dirt off of each mushroom. If the mushrooms are very dirty I use a lightly damped paper towel. You can also use a mushroom brush.

Slice the stem to make shorter.

After the mushrooms are clean and the stem cut, slice them any thickness you want or need for a particular recipe.
