Gee Dawg, my sister had a back retaining wall that was built in the 1700. She used to collect the Hen in the Woods every year. They just kept coming back, over and over. Faithful little buggers.

Wash mushrooms?

Addie, I envy your sister! One of our neighbors had a dying tree that was great for Hens. Sadly, he cut it down and burned out the stump. But our friend still thinks of us, and brings us a stash when he finds them. His own family won't eat them!

I wash whole mushrooms, but not the sliced ones. Also I for sure wash the wild mushrooms several times.

My friends, friend goes mushroom hunting each year for hen of the woods. He actually sets his gps so he knows exactly where each tree is located. Thats taking it to a whole other level.

I only hunt for wild mushrooms in my yard. Morels, chanterelles, puffballs, pheasant backs, and turkey tails.

I followed the suggestions of a quick rinse with the sprayer and promptly drying just before using. Worked out well. Thanks to all for the info.

I'm a little late on this thread but wanted to make a comment. If I get mushrooms that are "new", nice and white, I just wipe them with a damp cloth. But once they get a little older, or if they have that black stuff clinging to them I peel them. DH think's I'm nuts, and some people here probably do too. Mostly I just fry them and it makes me feel better that all that stuff is off them. When they are new, you can't really peel them but they peel easily when they get older.
