What to do when you have a lot of fresh mushrooms?

I always tend to have mushrooms in the fridge for those times when I crave my favorite Creamy Mushroom Soup, or just want to make some pizza or Balsamic Mushroom Bacon Pasta.

If you happen to have a lot of mushrooms in your hands, freezing them when still uncooked is an option, but I don’t recommend it. When thawed, mushrooms tend to get mushy and watery.

You can freeze cooked mushrooms more successfully in an air tight container for up to 2 months.

Simply sautee the mushrooms with garlic and butter, let them cool to room temperature and freeze.

If you like marinated mushrooms, these are loaded with flavor and taste amazing on their own or can be added to party platters for a fancy appetizer. Marinating mushrooms can preserve them for up to 10 days, if kept in the fridge.
