Feel free to get creative in the kitchen and cook them any way you like, but here are our top tips for making the most out of mushrooms!


Keep mushrooms in a cool, dark environment to get the longest shelf life. Try not to leave them in direct sunlight or they’ll quickly start to discolour.

Fun Fact: Mushrooms keep growing even after they’re picked (yes, really!) so if they change appearance after a while, it’s nothing to worry about.
