Where is the love? The love for the common mushroom? Chanterelles, morels, cepes, and the like get all the attention! Button! Button! Button! There’s only so much the common mushroom can take.

Did you know the button mushroom has just as much nutritional benefit, if not more. than their wild and fancy counter parts? Yeah, it’s true. Research has shown mushrooms provide immune system support, protection against cardiovascular disease and lowering risk of breast cancer. All this and it tastes great.

Did you know the button mushroom has just as much nutritional benefit, if not more. than their wild and fancy counter parts? Yeah, it’s true. Research has shown mushrooms provide immune system support, protection against cardiovascular disease and lowering risk of breast cancer. All this and it tastes great. Look for button mushrooms that are firm, plump, clean, and pale in color. Those that are wrinkled or have wet slimy spots should be avoided. Make sure you don’t keep them in plastic bags because mushrooms breath and plastic will make them deteriorate faster, so grab a cloth bag or throw them in a paper bag. If the mushrooms are dirty, wash them and if not, just take a damp paper towel and wipe away any smudges. Our favorite way to enjoy mushrooms are to slice them thin and sautéed them on high heat with good quality fat, minced shallots, parsley, and a squeeze of lemon juice on toast. Yeah, life is good.
