How do I prepare raw mushrooms for eating?
Asked by sushilover on Nov 07, 2008 in Nutrition


Brush dirt off mushrooms with a damp paper towel or use a soft mushroom brush to remove any of the sterile black growing medium.  Never wash or soak mushrooms because they absorb water and become soggy.  Trim the end of the stem before using.  Mushrooms can be eaten uncooked, sauteed, grilled, broiled, roasted, or microwaved.  Read all about mushrooms at
