Mushrooms - Field (single or bulk)

Description

Average weight = approx 125g

Neither fruit nor vegetable, the field mushroom is from the fungus family. They have an earthy, wild, meaty flavour and are one of the foods that contain umami, the fifth primary taste. Chefs describe umami as a savoury or brothy taste, that spreads across the tongue and lingers in your mouth.

Select mushrooms with a firm texture. Closed caps are a sign of fresh-picked mushrooms, however the flavour intensifies as the caps open. Store mushrooms in a paper bag in the crisper section of the fridge (plastic will make mushrooms sweat and deteriorate).

Mushrooms needn’t be washed before use. Use a damp cloth to wipe away any dirt. Prepare mushrooms as close to use as possible as they will discolour after being cut.

Mushrooms contain fibre, iron, potassium and B vitamins, and are low in kilojoules. They also contain small amounts of vitamin B12, usually found in animal foods such as meat and dairy products.
