The most common mushroom. It has a strong and individual flavor, keeps well in the refrigerator and combines with almost everything. It is available even in the worst weather, and all year long.
Flavor: White mushrooms are pleasingly mild and woodsy in taste. Flavors intensify when cooked.
Size: Small (up to 1-1/4") usually 89 +/- 12 per pound
Pair with: Mushrooms can be eaten fresh (raw), in salads, soups, pizzas, grilled, roasted, or baked.
Preparation & Storage: When possible gently rinse mushrooms to remove excess dirty and to clean the surface. If serving raw a suggestion of lightly sprinkling lemon juice will prevent them from white to brown in color.
