Salty mushrooms for the winter

Salty mushrooms for the winter

Fans of “quiet hunting” are looking forward to the onset of the mushroom pore. Some prefer only the noble mushrooms, for example, white, mildew or camelina. Others do not change their taste preferences and will not wait for August, when wild mushrooms appear near stumps and on tree trunks.

Under favorable conditions, honey fungi delight the mushroom pickers until October. Therefore, zealous hostesses do not miss the opportunity to prepare these mushrooms for future use. They dry them, salt, pickle.

Preparation again for salting

Mushrooms, like all mushrooms, do not tolerate long storage. So that they do not spoil, do not become wrapped up and do not break, being in a basket, they are immediately recycled when they come home.

First of all they are sorted out, discarding wormy, overgrown, dried. All broken pieces are also thrown away, as it is difficult to determine their identity.

Then they are cleaned of soil, leaves, other debris. Cut the edge of the leg. In order for the adhered debris to move away faster, the mushrooms are poured with cold water and kept for several hours. To prevent the mushrooms from souring, the water is changed several times.

After that, they are thoroughly washed until the water becomes completely clear. Revise again, removing bad mushrooms that have not been seen before.

Since honey agarics are not very large, they are not sorted by size. In adults, crushed feet are separated from the caps and cut into noodles. Large caps are sometimes cut in half. Small mushrooms salted whole.

Mushrooms can be salted both cold and hot. The coolest way is longer, but it is considered classic.

Many mushrooms do not need spices and are often salted without additives. Mushrooms do not have a pronounced “mushroom” aroma, so when they are salted they use bay leaf, garlic, dill, allspice, as well as currant leaves, cherry leaves and oak. For salting in advance it is recommended to use barrels. But since it is problematic to get this container, the hostesses pickle mushrooms in pots, pails and cans. If there is a cellar or a glacier, the mushrooms are left in large tanks. Otherwise, the fungus shifts in glass jars, sealed and stored in a cool place or in the refrigerator.
