Known in Japan as the bunapi shimeji, this Asian mushroom has a mild nutty flavor that is highlighted by its crisp texture. The Hon Shimeji mushroom will retain much of its crisp texture through cooking and as a result is very commonly used to provide some additional texture to stir fry’s, soups, and stews.
How to Store and Handle Mushrooms
- Mushrooms should be kept in the refrigerator in a paper bag.
- As a rule, clean the mushrooms as you need them, ideally without water. Paring knives, mushroom brushes, and tea towels can all be used to remove debris.
- Mushrooms will usually last about a week in the refrigerator, but are best consumed within the first three days.
- If the mushrooms you receive are a little damp, allow them to air dry in the refrigerator.
