Different mushrooms are cleaned differently:-

  • Wiping: This method is best suited for smooth-capped mushrooms like Button or Portobello Mushrooms. You need to wipe the caps and stems using a damp paper towel very gently.
  • Brushing: This technique is suitable for cleaning mushrooms like Chanterelle.
  • Rinsing: You can also rinse the mushrooms under running water to clean the dirt/soil. Do remember that after rinsing; shake the mushrooms well to remove the excess water that may be stuck in the gills (the spot underneath the cap). Mushrooms should be rinsed just before cooking!
  • Soaking: When using dried mushrooms, soak them in a bowl of warm water (or broth) for 15-20 minutes until the mushrooms soften. Take out the mushrooms on a plate. Filter the water (through cheesecloth) for later use.
