Choice and conservation

- If you pick wild mushrooms, be very careful not to come home with poisonous mushrooms. Just one will contaminate the others.
- Bought mushrooms should be firm, clean and whole.
- Because they're fragile, mushrooms should be kept in the fridge and eaten soon after picking or purchase.

- Don't soak mushrooms. It makes them soggy.

- Wipe them with a cloth and scrape the dirty or spoiled parts off with a knife. Run water over them and dry.
