                    | Food Stories | Q&A: What's the proper way to clean fresh mushrooms?

Fresh mushrooms are high in moisture, very porous, and easily absorb water like a sponge. As such, they should never be soaked in water.

Since many of the mushrooms in the market are grown in a sterile environment, they need only to be scrubbed with a soft brush or wiped with a damp paper towel. Trim off damaged spots and remove tough and woody stems by simply popping them from the caps.

For mushrooms that are soiled, place them in a colander and give them a quick rinse under running water. Afterwards, wipe off any remaining dirt with a paper towel.
