Be sure to seal your mushrooms in a plastic container and place them into a refrigerator (set for roughly 2°C). Slicing the mushrooms before they are stored in the fridge will also assist in keeping them fresher longer. Shimeji mushrooms will stay fresh for up to 5 days if they do not become too moist too quickly.

These mushrooms are packaged in the tight bouquet they’ve been grown in with stems and caps attached.

Shimeji mushrooms should be cooked before being consumed as they tend to have a rather bitter taste when consumed raw. Shimeji mushrooms tend to be firm, crunchy and slightly nutty in flavor. These mushrooms are great in stirfrys, soups, stews, and in sauces.
