  • Mushrooms of any type (except morels*)


  1. Fill a large bowl with water. Add the mushrooms and toss them in the water for a minute or so until the dirty mostly settles to the bottom. Remove from the bowl and pat dry. Or for a cheaters method, you can simply place the mushrooms in a colander and spray them with water until the dirt washes away.
  2. Cook using your favorite method, like Best Ever Sauteed Mushrooms, Roasted Mushrooms, or Grilled Mushrooms.


*Morels can be very dirty, so the require cleaning with a scrub brush.
