Sliced mushroom storage

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
i always buy these 8oz sliced mushroom packs and never find the time to make the chicken marsalla so they start to get kind of old.

I would think for a marsalla where you saute the mushrooms and make a sauce that they could get a little brown without any very bad effect. Much different than a salad of course.

Anyway to prolong the life of this product, maybe a spritz with lemon juice?

I wonder if canned might be acceptable. Dont answer, I know, perish the thought.

Today I want to embark on eggplant parmesian but have the mushrooms getting old so I thought I might cook a dish of chicken marsalla and put it in the fridge just to use up the mushrooms. I dont think you loose too much flavor after the freeze?

I got eggplant at 33 cent each at a sale. Now I will go spend the other $25 for the sauce and cheeses to complete the dish.

Maybe this is one of those "just figure it out Einstein" types of questions? I find that more often than not when I review my endeavors with the group I do in fact glean valuable knowledge on one or more aspect of the plan.

Dont change.

If your shrooms are aging, try sauteeing in a little butter till just soft, then cooling and freezing them in suitable size batches. It works for me.

Don't buy sliced. They start drying out right away. Your knife is your friend.

Interesting point and makes sense. Kind of like pre shredded cheeses...?

Don't pre-shredded cheeses have something tossed in with them to keep the pieces separate? (Think I remember reading it here once). I really don't like it, my teens don't either. (Hubby has no palate heh). We always buy a solid kg of cheese, then do what we need with it on the day.

Back on topic - sometimes the sliced 'shrooms can be had at a bargain price. That's when I'll buy them if using in something saucy on the day. I agree, whole is better.
