You Start With Fresh Mushrooms

The other day we received a box of mushroom pieces and ends. These mushrooms were the stems from some large button mushrooms and would have gone to waste except for the recipe for pickled mushrooms that I have developed over the years that has gotten the recipe down to a science.

The basic recipe for a quart of mushrooms is:

2 cups of vinegar

1/3 cup of water

3 tablespoons of canning salt

1 Package Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix, the dry package

To increase the batch, I usually double or triple the vinegar, water and salt. I do not add more Italian Dressing mix.

Cook Time

Prep time: 1 hour
Cook time: 1 hour
Ready in: 2 hours
Yields: 3 quart jars of mushrooms


  • 3 pounds mushroooms
  • 6 cups vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 9 tablespoons canning salt
  • 1 package Good Seasons Italian Dressing

How to Make

  1. Bring vinegar, water, salt and Good Seasons Italian to a boil.
  2. Add Mushrooms to vinegar solution. Boil 12 minutes. Place in jars. Divide liquid amongst the jars. Add a garlic clove to each jar. Put lid on jar.

      This is one we will definitely try. I like that the mushrooms are boiled. We can even introduce this to some of the institutions we work with to share with their students in Food Technology. My husband is very excited. We leave for Cambodia tomorrow and will try this once we're settled. Thank you.
