How to Freeze Mushrooms

Traci Taylor

Sometimes the deal is too good to pass up when it comes to fresh produce and you can’t help but buy in bulk.  But what do you do if you’re not able to use all of the produce before it goes bad?  Like, say, mushrooms?  Simple, freeze them like I did!  Here’s how:

First you need to pick out your mushrooms. Avoid mushrooms that are dry, shriveled, darkened, moldy, have bad spots or smell funky.

Clean the mushrooms and then slice or dice them. You want to make sure they’re no more than 1/2-inch thick.

Next, spread the mushroom pieces in a single layer on a cookie sheet.  It’s okay if the mushrooms touch, but you don’t want them to overlap. Freeze the mushrooms for 2 hours and then transfer the mushroom s to a baggie or freezer container.

Because the mushrooms have already been frozen in a single layer, the pieces will stay loose and individual in whatever container you put them in.

When you’re ready to use the frozen mushrooms, add them to your recipe.  If you want to put them in something like a salad, let them thaw out first.
