View Full Version : ? about freezing mushrooms
Can we freeze dishes that have mushrooms in them?
I was wondering if the mushrooms might go a bit chewy when recooked?
Anyone know if I they will freeze ok?

I have. Only ones that at chopped, never froze whole ones before. The are ok. Not like you just cooked them in the dish. But edable.

Tho always they have been cooked and included in dishes that have other stuff in them. Stews and quiches are best.
I slice or dice fresh mushes and cook, then include when needed. I find canned mushes don't work well at all! They tend to get tough of rubbery.
Does this help at all? Hope it does - j

I freeze them Lara.
When I buy fresh mushrooms for a recipe, I slice what's left over and freeze those. You do need to use them fairly soon or they go a bit tough.
I've not had the mushrooms in any cooked dish, toughen when the dish was frozen. (eg. Stroganoff.)
