Tip: Use a damp cloth to clean mushrooms. Due to their porous flesh, mushrooms should never be washed, as they absorb liquid and become saturated. Before cooking, trim the base of the stems where the individual mushroom or cluster joins, as this area is often chewy in texture, then choose the right cooking technique for the variety of mushroom. As a rule of thumb, the more delicate the mushroom, the less cooking time is required. Most mushrooms however, will not hold up well to lengthy cooking.

If you want to add mushrooms to a stew or braise, consider sautéing them first, then adding them only toward the end. Mushrooms shrink as they cook, and a long stewing process might leave you with little tiny bits. Try not to crowd the pan when cooking mushrooms, as this lowers the heat too much and makes it more difficult to brown them nicely.

Mushrooms are not only delicious, but they also have many health benefits. They are earthy, satisfying and delicious delights. While cooking mushrooms, follow two rules:  Use high heat and sear them brown.
