Mushrooms and more mushrooms.
« on: January 19, 2014, 01:25:38 am »
We had two large boxes of mushrooms dropped off to us. I think I will be making every mushroom dish on the forum at least once.
I was wondering if anyone had any uses for them that aren't on the forum?  DH has been looking all morning and has found a few extra.
Thanks.

What about drying them. Haven't tried it myself though. Just a thought.

If you have some really big jars you could marinate some, I see they are large, yes I think drying some might be a good idea.

Wow that is a lot of mushrooms.  I have no idea how you could use that many!
I would try AB's suggestion and marinate some.

We have lots of 2 litre jars AB. Will definitely marinate some. Off to find recipes. Thanks.
We have just filled the dryer with the first load to be dried.

That's a lot of mushrooms to get through Cookie, you'll be tied to the kitchen for a while with that lot.  

Mushroom lasagne
Mushroom sauce

From Oprah.com - When you've bought more mushrooms than you can use up, a simple way to keep them is to dice and sauté them. You can then pack the sautéed dice, which the French call duxelles, in a small freezer bag and dip into it whenever you want a tablespoon or so to add to a sauce, a soup, an omelet, whatever.

Thank you everyone. So far I have done soup, the dryer is full and I have some marinating and for dinner we are having Mich's summer burgers.

Jeninwa and Judy I will do both those things this afternoon. :-*

Cookie, I made the mushroom stroganoff from this 5:2 thread link http://www.mirror.co.uk/lifestyle/dieting/recipes/52-diet-fast-low-calorie-1770918 and it was delicious. I made a quarter serve for my lunch and gave my Dd A taste, and promptly had to make up another batch for her and two of her friends.
I also have a recipe for mushroom filo triangles that I often make for parties. I have taken a photo of my handwritten recipe which you may or may not be able to read. I also have some notes about converting it to thermie, but I haven't written them up properly. If you are interested, I can post them

Great buckets of mushrooms cookie. Love them, but not really sure what to do with that many. Will be interesting to see what you come up with.
