if you're someone who buys a lot of fresh produce, one of the worst things is when something goes bad before you get a chance to eat it.
i love a good mushroom, but they go bad so quickly. so i did a little research and found a few different methods that promise to increase the shelf life of fungi, and this is by far the best.
throwing them in a brown paper bag and then putting that bag in the fridge keeps them fresh and ready to go. these mushrooms pictured below are more than a week old, and they look just as good as the day i brought them home from the store.
so here's to tripling your shelf life and fully enjoying your creminis and shiitakes!
