There are a lot of ways to prepare mushrooms: it's marinating, pickling, freezing, drying, etc. Each of them has its own subtleties and advantages. But later in the cold winter evenings the family can be pleased with pies with mushroom filling, tasty mushroom sauce, unusual salad and other dishes.

The general rules for the preparation of ceps for all baking recipes for the winter are as follows:

  • fresh mushrooms can not be stored for a long time;
  • soaking mushrooms in water should be avoided, enough washing with running water;
  • must be thoroughly cleaned of debris before processing, cut off spoiled parts and check for worms;
  • can be harvested as large or small copies.

Drying of white mushrooms

Dried boletus has the strongest flavor in comparison with those prepared in other ways. And the process itself is quite simple. Dry them with an oven, a special dryer, sunlight or a fire.

It is not necessary to rinse the mushrooms before drying, as they will dry long after they have been saturated with water. Usually for drying large mushrooms are cut into large slices, and small ones are left whole. The drying time depends on the selected method.

It is recommended to store dried white mushrooms in tissue pouches or glass jars. In winter, before using, you need to soak them in water, and then add them to dishes such as pizza, borsch, buckwheat, etc.

Freezing of white mushrooms

This method of harvesting allows you to maximally preserve the taste and useful properties of mushrooms. At the same time, they last more than six months.

The only drawback: after defrosting and cooking, the fungi significantly decrease in volume. Therefore, before freezing it is recommended to boil them or fry them( but you can use raw ones).

Fold them in packages and send to the freezer mushrooms only after they have dried. It is better to count so that in one package there was a portion at a time, since repeated freezing can lead to poisoning.

When cooking frozen mushrooms are thrown directly into boiling water or into a frying pan, so that they remain beautiful and do not turn into gruel. Frozen mushrooms are widely used for cooking first courses and side dishes.

Pickling and marinating of white mushrooms

Pickled or pickled mushrooms will be very crispy and spicy. This is the perfect appetizer or salad ingredient on the festive table. There are a lot of recipes for cooking mushrooms in these ways, and each of them will allow you to get absolutely different taste.

In general, the methods of salting are divided into two types: cold and hot. In the first case, pickling will take longer, but you can store mushrooms longer.

Ideal containers for pickling are oak barrels, but enameled, glass or ceramic dishes are also suitable. Marinated mushrooms are rolled into well-sterilized jars, while the lids are also boiled.

When pickling and pickling mushrooms, it is very important to adhere to all the rules and processes. This will help minimize the risks of infection with botulism, an infectious disease that is very common when using these methods of harvesting.
