Great Time of Year for Wild Mushrooms

I love old mushrooms. I buy them a week in advance and put them on a plate in the refrigerator.

The mushrooms will lose moisture while sitting in the frig, instead of giving up lots of water in the sauté pan.

This trick results in a nice and crispy mushroom sauté, and not a soggy one.

    Great idea, Karen. I will try it next time I cook shitaki mushrooms. I sauted fresh ‘cepes’
    two days ago; would that work with them as well? Amities, Sigun.
