Can You Pickle Mushrooms?

OK, I don't know why I though of this but as I was going to sleep last night I began wondering if you could pickle mushrooms. I have never seen or heard of anyone doing this. I don't see why it wouldn't work. If it can be done, does anyone have a recipe for them? I'd like to try it sometime. If it can't be done, why? Thanks!!

Of course you can!

Don't have a recipe though. We buy them at the Polish market. They're usually button mushrooms, and they generally have a small carrot, and a few pearl onions in with them as well.

Think the brand is Polish Princess, but I'm not sure.

Yield: about 1 quart

6 cups water
2 tablespoons coarse -- (kosher) salt
1 1/2 pounds small white mushrooms -- rinsed

2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 small cinnamon stick

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 clove garlic -- peeled, halved
3/4 cup olive oil -- approx.

Combine the water and 1 tb. of the salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the mushrooms and boil for 2 minutes., then drain, reserving 2/3 c. of liquid.

In an enameled, Pyrex, or stainless steel saucepan, combine reserved mushroom liquid, vinegar, coriander seeds, bay leaves, cinnamon, peppercorns, thyme, and the remaining 1 tb. salt. Boil for 5 minutes.

Pack mushrooms into a clean quart jar and pour the pickling liquid over them. Add the garlic clove and olive oil, using whatever amount is necessary to fill the jar, then cap the jar. Refrigerate for at least a week before serving, shaking the jar at least once a day. The marinated mushrooms will keep, refrigerated, for several weeks.

Hi Crewsk, have regularly purchased them in supermarkets (just regular supermarkets, not fancy places) in New England, New York, Virginia, and Florida.

Use them for an antipasto platter for company.

Have made them also, but usually just buy them because I don't think the effort is worth it, particularly when there are so many other interesting foods to prepare.

Would suggest you ask your grocer about it.

Hope this helps.

WOW! Thanks Rainee & auntdot!! I'll have to look for them at the store. I've never seen them before but then again I never really thought about it until last night.
