Why Asparagus is Great

  • A yummy option that has a nice texture to it
  • Sauté them in no time!

How to Choose Mushrooms at the Grocery Store

When choosing mushrooms in the grocery store, flip the mushroom over and look for gills that are not exposed. The more exposed the gills are, the less fresh the mushroom is.

Mushrooms are dirty when first brought home from the store so be sure to wash the dirt off them thoroughly. Use your fingers to rub dirt off and lay out to dry on a paper towel.

The Best Way to Store Mushrooms

  1. Keep mushrooms in original packaging or place in a paper bag with top slightly open to ensure airflow.
  2. Place in refrigerator for up to one week!
