A mushroom is the fleshy body of an edible fungus. It typically grows above ground on soil or on its food source. Mushrooms have a meaty texture and are sometimes used in place of meat in dishes.
- Choose mushrooms that are dry and firm.
- Mushrooms spoil quickly and will only stay good for 1-2 days in the fridge.
- Do not store at room temperature.
