How to Prepare Mushrooms
Preparation may vary depending on the variety of mushroom.
Washing shiitake mushrooms spoils the flavor. To clean shiitake mushrooms, wipe with a paper towel or cloth. Gently pat the top of the cap to get rid of any dirt from the gills (underside of the cap). Cut off the stem.
Shimeji mushrooms / Enoki mushrooms
Cut off the stems of shimeji mushrooms, separate into small clusters and quickly rinse. Cut off the tough root ends of enoki mushrooms. Just before cooking, swish them around in water to remove any dirt.
