I like mushrooms. DH likes mushrooms. So, I bought six packages! I worked two of those packages into our menu in the next few days. The rest of them I decided to freeze.
First, I rinsed them, cut off the ends of the stems, and sliced them into about 1/4" slices.
Then I sauteed them in butter for 3 minutes, stirring often.
Next, I put them on cookie sheets and stuck them in the freezer to cool them quickly without washing off the buttery mushroom juices.
After about half an hour, I removed the cookie sheets from the freezer, scooped the mushrooms into baggies, and then put the baggies back into the freezer.
Mmmm! Sauteed mushrooms for the future! I think, next time they go on sale for such a great price I'll get five pounds or maybe more. I'd like to try dehydrating some next time too; for easier storage and use in soups or other saucy things.
