How to Clean Mushrooms

Mushrooms add earthy flavor and texture to all kinds of savory dishes. In this video, you’ll see how to clean mushrooms for cooking, plus learn about different types of mushrooms, including dried mushrooms. You’ll see how to store mushrooms correctly so they don’t get mushy. You’ll learn great ways to wash different kinds of mushrooms properly; some with just a wipe down (like shiitake, portobello, crimini, and button mushrooms), others with a mushroom cleaning brush (like chanterelles). If you’re rinsing with water, we’ll show you how to do it without water logging them. You’ll also see how to refresh dried mushrooms and how to get the most out of your rehydrating liquid.
