Country of originGrown in
- The UK
They love a little butter or cream, and a cautious squeeze of lemon will give them a huge lift
How to prepare
To prepare mushrooms, wipe them clean with some damp kitchen roll or a clean cloth. There’s no need to peel off the skins or discard the stalks.
Roast, grill or fry. In pasta sauces, stir-fries, risottos, soups - these chestnuts are very versatile. For an easy dinner, grab a hot pan, a dab of butter, some crushed garlic, throw in your sliced mushrooms and let sizzle. Fold in a few fresh herbs if you have them and serve piping hot on thick toast with a squeeze of lemon.
Keep in the fridge and eat within a few days.
