Next time you need to better brown the arsenic.

Try this with mushrooms - any type - if fresh - dry them to a condition of slight moistness - then fry with butter-olive oil - bit of water - they will have a great 'chewiness' (if you like that kind of thing' :-) - and the flavor also will be nicely concentrated.

I have found small children to love them even 'all alone' like this - while at the same time they reject the slimy mush that is the usual 'mushroom' result.

And even fry them to being semi-crisp - and some will find a new taste treat.

-----

One can go the other way - and start with all-dry mushrooms - soak a bit and then fry in butter-olive oil.

Dried musshrooms can be ground into a powder and used to flavor various foods as well.
