Handling and Storage
Easily bruised – take extra care in handling. Purchase mushrooms that are firm with a fresh, smooth appearance. Surfaces should be dry, but not dried out, and appear plump. A closed veil under the cap indicates a delicate flavor, while an open veil and exposed gills mean a richer flavor. Store in their original package or in a brown paper bag for up to one week in the refrigerator. Clean before eating under cold running water.
