Pickled Mushrooms (Canned)

Recipe by Bonnie Young

I was looking for a recipe for pickled mushrooms that tasted like the ones you buy in the grocery or liquor store. The type used in cocktails. Came across this one from Morton Salt. I haven't tried it yet. http://www.mortonsalt.com/recipes/RecipeDetail.aspx?RID=38

These pickled mushrooms were really good but next time I will not use as much vinegar. So easy to make. I will try these again for sure. Thanks for posting Bonnie. Updated: I tried these about 2 hours after making and thought the vinegar was too much but after sitting in the refrigerator over night all ingredients melded together and the taste was just right wouldn't change a thing. I've already ate one jar by myself.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim off stem ends of mushrooms. Wash mushrooms in cool running water. Drain.
  2. In large pot, combine vinegar, water and salt. Heat, stirring to dissolve salt. Add mushrooms. Heat to boiling; reduce heat and simmer mushrooms in brine for 10 to 12 minutes or until tender. Pack mushrooms into sterilized half-pint jars. To each jar add: 1 tablespoon onion, 1/2 teaspoon peppercorns, and 1 clove garlic. Fill jars with hot brine, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Remove air bubbles using a non-metal spatula. Wipe rims of jars and adjust lids. Process for 20 minutes in a boiling water bath.
  3. NOTE: If mushrooms are large (2 inches in diameter), 1 to 2 more sterilized pint jars may be needed. Use additional spices as needed for each jar. Processing time above is for less than 1000 feet. For altitudes of 1000-6000 feet, process 25 minutes; above 6000 feet, process for 30 minutes.
