Mushrooms from nature usually come with luggage into the kitchen.
Sand, needles, moss and insects are unwelcome companions.
The type of fungus plays a subordinate role here. Tube mushrooms such as bay bolete and porcini mushrooms, lamellar mushrooms such as chanterelles and meadow mushrooms… all mushrooms naturally have a cuddly surface.
I have found that forest dwellers of all kinds are magically attracted to mushrooms. I think they actually meet under the umbrella!
Cooks don’t like to wash mushrooms so much, the cooking guild is a few as an exception: During washing, the hat journeymen lose their aroma.
It would be a full evening discussion to find out how much taste is lost in the wash. Or is it perhaps even the forest companions that make up the typical taste of mushroom dishes in the end?
A simple statement… If the mushrooms are very dirty, please wash them. If the dirt can be removed easily with a brush, then please do without washing.
Following the instructions in detail, have fun reading and bathing mushrooms!
