keeping mushrooms fresh

hey guys
anybody have a trick to keeping their mushroom stock looking good??
i can’t stand when you get to the bottom box and it has turned wet and moldy,mushy…whatever…
we try filling cambro tubs but it doesn’t help much…
Any ideas would help,
thanx

Purchase less mushrooms?

But if thats not an option, do you slice them yourselves? Or buy them pre-sliced?

I buy ours pre-sliced and they last about 5-7 days and still looking good/dry. They come in a well ventilated cardboard box with blue wax like paper on top that helps with the freshness.

Mushrooms have to breathe. Be sure to keep them in a well ventilated and dry area of your fridge. Be sure not to cover them with plastic wrap.

testing today…

putting them on a lined sheet tray, single layer & topped w/a dough box…

when we recieve our schrooms (pre sliced) we remove them from the boxs and transfer them into plastic buckets with lids… we also cut 2 X’s in the lids for them to breath. They keep like 3x’s longer this way. At least for us.

We slice ouselves. Found that if we put three or four layers of paper towel on bottom of container and layer 2" mushrooms then more p towel then mushrooms etc they stay DRY. Clive.
