Pickled mushroom question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi , 

I made a very nice pickles mushroom recipe from Lu Chows the book about the Great German restaurant. The marinade consisted of White wine 2 cups , Apple cider vinegar 2 cups, onion, bay leaf ,some other things I can't remember. I made it about two weeks ago and I still have the marinade and finished the 1 pound of mushrooms. My question is, can I reuse the marinade with new mushrooms? the mushrooms need to cook in the marinade about 20 minutes  or should I start from scratch with the new ingredients?

 

Thank you .

As long as it hasn't spoiled. Not sure if the second batch would taste the same as the first.  But if you are cooking the mushrooms as in heating them to boiling, then you're probably okay.

Boil the marinade first then you should be good to go.  I guess I should say I'm not a scientist or anything but I've done this many times and I'm still alive.

As long as you are not canning this it should be okay. Might want to add like a 1/2 cup of each vinegar to get the acid level back up after the mushroom juice diluted it.

From a safety standpoint I don't think there is a problem especially if you boil your marinade first, but I don't know that you will get the same flavor that you would from a new batch.  The mushrooms will have absorbed a considerable amount of the flavor of the marinade and in return added some of their flavor.  Just thinking that the flavors will end up being a little muddled by using the marinade twice.  Don't think it would be bad though so maybe worth a try.
