COOKING AND HEALTH TIPS: No Mushy Mushrooms – Mushrooms soak up water like a sponge, then release it later while cooking ( which can change the consistency of recipes ). Try “dry cleaning” your favorite fungi. You can find a “mushroom brush” with soft bristles at most kitchen stores. Lightly moisten the brush (or a rag) with water, and gently wipe the mushrooms clean.
