Kitchen Tip Tuesdays: Freezing Mushrooms

This post is linked up to Tammy’s Recipes

Today I thought I’d share yet another way I am making the most of the mushrooms on sale at Aldi for $0.59/8-ounce package.

Since my husband and I both love mushrooms in everything and these fresh mushrooms are cheaper than canned, I borrowed a tip from my mom about preserving mushrooms quickly and easily!

First, I washed and either sliced or halved/quartered (depending on size) my mushrooms.Β  Then I then froze them in Ziploc bags.Β  There’s no cooking necessary!Β  These frozen mushrooms will be all ready to put into soups, use with eggs, put on pizza, or anything else.

It’s a great way to save money on mushrooms by making the sale last longer than one week!

    AW! I JUST threw away a bag of assorted mushrooms I bought at the Farmer’s Market last weekend. They weren’t bad yet but I knew they were heading in that direction and would be by the time I could get to making something with them. So as I cleaned out my fridge a few days ago, I decided to toss them and take the loss. Didn’t know shrooms were freezable! Thanks for the post, I’ll remember that next time! πŸ™‚

  4. I had no idea you could freeze them either. Most sites say you can’t .. i will have to do this now. Thanks.

    • You totally can! That’s really strange that anyone would say you couldn’t! When I use them in a hot dish, I can’t tell AT ALL that they have been frozen! πŸ™‚

      PLUS, it’s like zero prep time to freeze them! πŸ™‚
