HOW TO STORE MUSHROOMS IN THE FRIDGE
If you store fresh mushrooms correctly, they’ll stay good for up to a week. It’s easy. Here’s how.

Place whole, unwashed mushrooms in a brown paper bag and fold the top of the bag over. Then stick the bag in the main compartment of your refrigerator. This works because the bag absorbs excess moisture from the mushrooms so they don’t get soggy or moldy.

HOW TO FREEZE MUSHROOMS
Mushrooms freeze well, but it’s best to get them in the freezer as soon as you can. Don’t wait for your mushrooms to start deteriorating in the fridge before you decide to freeze some.

Mushrooms need to be cooked before they’re frozen. This will stop the enzyme action, thereby preserving their quality, so it’s important not to skip this step.
