- How do I store my fresh mushrooms?
The short answer is in a paper bag, or in the compostable package we offer in your refrigerator. For more information, check out our blog: Storing mushrooms.
You should only freeze them once cooked. Mushrooms contain a lot of water in their cells, meaning they’re likely to be mushy in texture when defrosted.

- How do I cook these mushrooms?
The best part about mushrooms is that they go with SO MANY kinds of dishes. Mushrooms complement almost any everyday meal, they are versatile and even act as a meat replacement for their texture — from appetizers and salads to main dishes and sides, mushrooms can be enjoyed in so many ways.
Sear mushrooms for a more intense roasted, charred and smoky flavor and overall aroma. Roast mushrooms to get more sweet, salty and umami tastes with caramelized, nutty and buttery flavors.
They go well in tacos, soups, stews, stir fries, the list goes on.

- How long does dried mushrooms keep?
We recommend storing dried mushrooms in the freezer in a sealed, airtight bag where they will keep for at least 1 year. After this point they can start to lose flavor, just like spices and dried herbs.
- Are mushrooms good for my health?
Mushrooms are full of nutritional benefits. Some of them include the following:
- Mushrooms are naturally low in sodium plus their umami counter-balances saltiness so less salt can be used in a dish without compromising flavor.
- Meaty mushrooms are low in calories, fat-free and can be a delicious substitute for higher-calorie ingredients.
- Do you sell psilocybin or other psychoactive mushrooms or their spores?
No. It is illegal to sell psilocybin mushrooms or their spores in the United States.
