    Default Mushroom question

    I bought a couple of packages of sliced mushrooms on Friday to use in a stir fry
    dish tonight. They've sat on my counter for two days in their original
    packaging, which is a plastic container covered with plastic wrap. They seem to
    be turning dark. Are they going bad after just two days? Are they alright to
    use? I usually buy mushrooms the day I'm going to use them so I'm not used to
    seeing them sit for a couple of days. Are they safe to use? Thanks.

    Use em fast.

    In the future, immediately put mushrooms into a brown paper bag,
    scrunch it up, and store in fridge for a few days.

    They're edible but drying out. They'll taste fine but might be a bit tough.
    Probably not something you'd serve uncooked but would be fine in a stew or
    sauce.

    well, leaving them on the counter probably exacerbated the problem.
    Refrigerating them would have been better.

    why would you leave mushrooms out on the counter for any time at all?
    They need to be kept cool and dark. They may be alright to use, but
    don't be surprised if they are slippery/slimy after steaming away in a
    closed plastic container. Don't do that again.

    Plastic wrapping is airtight enough to start fermentation in the
    mushrooms kept at room temperature for more than a couple of hours. The
    results can be a NASTY gastrointestinal upset. I just read an article on
    an infectious diseases group this AM where the French health services
    are warning seasonal wild mushroom gatherers against using plastic bags
    for just this reason.... even just while gathering....

    Refrigerate as soon as you get 'em home.......

    Thanks for all the replies. I'll put off my wok dish until tomorrow and buy new
    mushrooms. And the reason I let them sit on the counter is because the produce
    shelf where I found them in the store didn't seem to be refrigerated, so I
    figured they didn't like the cold.

    Another question is why is the package of whole (button) mushrooms I bought the
    same day and are also on the counter, look about as fresh as the day I bought
    them. I did open the plastic wrap to use a handful of them. Is it because they
    weren't completely covered up? Thanks again.

    Any sliced vegetable or fruit spoils or dries out quicker than if it
    were whole. Because of the slicing, there's more surface area exposed
    to air and bacteria. In addition many of the cells have been cut open
    and are "leaking" moisture.

    They will last about two weeks in the fridge vegetable compartment.
    After a week, they may have a slightly slimy feel but that can be
    scrubbed off. You can even peel them if you wish.

    There are many different items of produce that are displayed without
    refrigeration, but that doesn't mean that the produce doesn't suffer
    from it. Covered refrigeration keeps your produce fresh and firm.

    This has got to be the dumbest thread I've ever bothered to read.
    You can't find a mushroom within 5,000 miles of here in a grocery store
    that isn't refrigerated.

    Oh, there's no door? It's still refrigerated, and misted and tended to
    relentlessly to maintain an appearance of freshness.

    My god, have you never seen an open top freezer case at the store?
    Same principal in the produce section.
    Same with all the bacon, sausage, lunchmeat, etc. that needs to be
    refrigerated, but also needs to be *very* accessible to the ignorant masses
    who apparently can't see through glass.

    The only occasion I've seen mushrooms unrefrigerated is at my local produce
    stands and they're obviously rotated out on a daily basis as they always
    look better than those in the grocery store.

    Still, I have enough common sense to put them in the fridge when I get them
    home if I'm not gonna eat them immediately.

    You don't actually need to refrigerate them immediately if you're going to
    use them within a day or two (or even three). Take them out of their
    plastic package, put them in a paper bag, and add a small scrunch of barely
    moistened paper towel. Close the bag tightly, and re-moisten the paper
    towel after a day if things seem to be drying out. I wouldn't prolong this
    beyond a few days.

    I will agree with you that the plastic wrap from the store is a death
    sentence for them.

    Paper bags are pretty scarce around here. I suppose I could ask the
    water-head bag boy for a few extra next time I shop.

    Or I could just steal a handful on my way out as I always grocery shop on
    my bike. Good luck running me down or reporting me on that.

    Mushrooms will breathe -- i.e. exude moisture. That's why relatively
    air-tight plastic is bad for longer storage, trapping moisture and
    promoting either slimy or moldy mushrooms after a day or two. On the other
    hand, just leaving them out in the air will dry them out and turn them
    brown. Actually it sounds a bit like storing garlic. You need a breathable
    container with enough moisture.

    After only two days they're okay for soup, even sauteeing so long as
    they're not slimey (sliced discolor quickly) but next time refrigerate
    them, and even in the fridge they will keep well only like 4-5 days.
    If you need to keep them a few days longer buy whole mushrooms, sliced
    don't keep well. I would have used them within 24 hours... fresh
    mushrooms get delivered to market every day.. next time don't buy
    until you're ready to use them. If you want mushrooms on hand until
    you're in the mood keep dehydrated mushrooms in your pantry, in most
    cooked dishes they work better than fresh.

    Whether mushrooms should be refrigerted depends on ambient
    temperature... if one lives in NY and buys mushrooms in winter and
    keeps their abode minimally heated it's probably best to keep
    mushrooms out on the counter, 65║F is better than 35║F in the fridge.
    But if you live in say Florida or Texhell it's probably best to
    refrigerate everything at all times. Here in NY mushrooms are
    typically not refrigerated in the produce department, usually they are
    simply placed in a cooled humidified area same as those bagged salad
    greens and herbs, typically about 60-65║F. Btw, I wouild never ever
    buy sliced fresh 'shrooms.

    Sliced are a complete waste of money, however tempting in time saved,
    unless you actually like pre-dried rubber. Don't like to slice mushrooms?
    Use an egg slicer (but be sure it's the sturdy kind).
