  • Mushrooms are packed with nutritional value. They’re low in calories, are great sources of fiber and protein (good for plant-based diets).
  • They also provide many important nutrients, including B vitamins, selenium, potassium, copper, and (particularly when exposed to the sun) vitamin D.
  • They’re packed with as many antioxidants as more colorful fruits and vegetables.

Here is how to store your fresh mushroom from the farm.

  • Prepackaged mushrooms should stay in the package but don’t forget to poke a few holes to allow air flow.
  • Keep fresh mushrooms in a paper bag or in a damp cloth bag in the refrigerator. This allows them to breathe so they stay firm longer. Avoid storing mushrooms in a plastic bag, which causes them to deteriorate quickly.
