Updated on December 4, 2012

Most of the mushrooms you buy in the shops today are cultivated and only require washing and draining before use.

In recipes for stuffed mushrooms, you can use the stalks which are normally cut off and thrown away.

Only the earthy end of the stalks need to be removed.

Field mushrooms, on the other hand, need skinning as well as washing and de-stalking to get rid of any ingrained dirt and grit.

A reasonable portion is to use 1 - 4oz of mushrooms per portion depending on whether the mushrooms are to be used as avegetable or garnish.

When buying mushrooms, choose those which look fresh and firm and use as soon as you can because mushrooms do not keep well and deteriorate quickly.
