Laurel's Marinated Mushrooms (Easy Canning)

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 20 mins

I've been making these for more than 20 years. I usually give them in holiday gift baskets, and if I don't, then I'm in trouble! Not only are they delicious tasting, they are very pretty, too! Only one thing about this recipe is that you have to find tiny mushrooms, 1-1/4 inch or less across, and that might not be easy. Our Fred Meyer store sells them, and when I'm ready to can them, I just pick up the whole case out of the produce section and plop it in my cart! This recipe came from my county exchange master canner, 1989.

This is the best mushroom recipe. We like it better than the one in the store. I wondered what to do with all the stems since was not going to make any soup soon so did 2 jars of the stems...they did not last even a day before were gone. Thanks for sharing.
