Selection, Storage and Preparation
What to Look For: Fresh Oyster Mushrooms are dry and smooth, with firm caps and stems. Avoid mushrooms that are bruised, wet or spotted.
How to Store: Oyster Mushrooms keep best in paper bags inside your refrigerator, where they can be kept for up to two weeks. You can extend your mushroom’s storage life by placing a damp paper towel under the mushrooms.
Ways to Prepare: Oyster Mushrooms have a pleasant mushroom flavor, hold up well when cooked, and can be used almost anywhere you would use button mushrooms: soups, side dishes, spreads and dips, omelets, and pizza. They can be sautéed, stuffed, smoked, roasted or fried.
