- Fresh cut mushrooms should be white or light brown in the Crimini’s case. Older mushrooms turn dark.
- They should feel their weight: All mushrooms will lose a little moisture with time, but fresher mushrooms will weigh more.
Ideally, you consume the entire package of mushrooms in one sitting. However, if you need to store them:
- Make sure that they are kept in an airtight container as they will last a lot longer. If they are exposed to air, they will dehydrate quickly.
- Keep them cold.
