Knowing about the freezing trick sure would have helped some time ago as I brought back a large and expensive container of dried Porchini mushrooms from Italy that evidently hatched the nasty little eggs and infested the container with Weevils........I could hear them speaking Italian and snickering as they chomped away at my precious mushrooms.
Don't feel too bad. Maryanne Esposito bought a large box of mushrooms that she was going to use later in the day for a cooking class when she was in Italy. That afternoon when she opened her trunk, all she had left was a very large family of weevils. So if it can happend to the pros, it can happen to the best of us. BTW, for those that don't know. Maryanne is a TV chef who cooks Italian dishes on TV. Has been on for years.
