How Should I Store/Preserve Homegrown Mushrooms?


Q. After harvested, what is the best way to store or preserve? I’d the mushrooms are being sent to a chef, how will the chef want the mushrooms? Fresh, dried, frozen?

A. Congratulations on growing your own mushrooms!  Mushroom cultivars (e.g. chanterelle, enoki, baby oyster, shiitake, and morel) have different storage and preservation guidelines due to their unique structure and texture properties.  I recommend you follow-up with the chef you are working with and ask her/him for storage preferences.  Ways to Preserve Mushrooms
