    Good day...It's almost the end of the year and I am editing my recipies- both here and my box at home. I am trying to keep as many pantry and freezer items as possible to reduce the amount of trips to the store. Many of our favorite recipes call for mushrooms. I am not a fan of canned mushrooms. Is it possible to freeze mushrooms? I thought that maybe I would blanch them in some chicken stock, shock them in some cold water, then place in freezer bags. Has anyone tried this? Any suggustions would be really helpful.
    Thank you and may you all have a happy and healthy new year filled with much joy, love, and peace.....Dayle

    They should be sauteed. Just blanching won't be enough. I slice or chop them and saute with some onion or just plain, and then freeze them in 1/2 cup portions. Great for all kinds of things. Freeze in whatever quantity is useful for you, of course.

    duonyte thank you so much for your helpful tip! I dont care for mushrooms but DH does so I only buy them for the recipe I am making but having them sauteed and ready to go would be nice.

    Thanks for the info ! I will try the par boil method next year icon_biggrin.gif This sounds perfect as I didn't want any butter or oil in the mushrooms.

    To all the Food members: Thanks for another year of great recipes and useful info. Happy New Year to all.
