how to store
Keep your fresh candy cap mushrooms in the fridge, inside the wax paper bag. They'll keep fresh for about 3-5 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 3 to 5-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
The potent flavor of candy caps work well when powdered and added to your preferred dish.
Our candy cap mushrooms are thoroughly dried so all you need to do is crush them in your hands or powder them using a coffee, spice grinder, or mortar and pestle then add to your favorite dessert.
