About the product
The largest of the cultivated mushrooms, Portabellas have open veils and flat caps that can measure up to six inches in diameter. They are actually mature Criminis and have a meatier flavor, the result of a somewhat longer growing period. The stems are firmer in texture but can be trimmed and cooked along with the caps.

Keep mushrooms in a vented paper bag in the fridge. Enoki mushrooms will last only a few days, while white, oyster, crimini and boletes stay fresh for up to a week. Shiitake and portobello last up to 2 weeks.
Preparation Tip: Mushrooms soak up water which dilutes flavour and destroys nutrients, so to clean, wipe mushrooms with a damp paper towel or mushroom brush. Mushrooms should always be eaten cooked. The mycochitin composition of mushroom cell walls, as opposed to cellulose walls of plant cells, is more difficult for humans to digest. Our stomachs resent indigestible items, and often forcibly reject them without further ado. The cooking process helps break down fungal cell walls, rendering mushroom flesh not only more readily digestible, but also releasing significant nutritional value contained within the cells.
