how to store

Keep your black trumpet mushrooms in the fridge, inside the wax paper bag. They'll keep fresh for about 7 days.

Pro Tip → Store mushrooms towards the top of the fridge. Avoid the veggie drawer, it's often too cold for them! 

If you don't plan on eating them within the 7-day window, we recommend:

  • Cooking then storing in the freezer. 

  • Drying in a dehydrator.

  • Drying in the oven at its lowest setting for 2 hours. Flip them halfway through.

Pro Tip → Dried mushrooms can be rehydrated by soaking in warm water for 20 minutes or by tossing them in a simmering soup!

how to PREP

IMPORTANT: They must be thoroughly washed before using in a recipe!

Black trumpets are prone to getting pine needles or grit stuck in their funnels.

 

  1. Tear in half vertically to break up folded areas.
     

  2. Put strips in large bowl filled with cold water. Gently swish around to loosen bits. Allow grit to settle to the bottom.
     

  3. Remove with loose fingers keeping bits in bowl. Gently squeeze out excess water. Repeat up to 4x but usually once is enough. Now they’re ready to cook!
