They also have the advantage of being low in calories - less than 30 per 100g - yet a good source of minerals and vitamins B1, B2, B12 and C. This week we have a guide to storing, preparing and cooking mushrooms, as well as choosing the correct type for the dish you are making. more > Home File Index 480 Fit and Well 485 CHEAPER MOTOR INSURANCE FROM DIRECT LINE INSURANCE....187 Health Childcare Best Buys Your Money

When the fine white skin around the stalk breaks, revealing the pink gills, it is known as an "open cup". Growth continues to an "open" mushroom and finally when the mushroom is fully mature with dark gills, it is a "flat". The various types of mushroom are best used in different types of dishes. more follows > Home File Index 480 Fit & Well 485 Health Childcare Best Buys Your Money

They can be used whole, sliced or quartered in salads and cooked dishes. Cups are slightly more mature with a full flavour. Closed or open cups can be sliced, quartered or used whole in casseroles, soups and stuffings and used whole as a vegetable. Opens, flats or "breakfast" mushrooms are fully mature with a rich flavour. These are best for grilling and frying and can be served as part of a mixed grill or with steak. more follows > Home File Index 480 Fit & Well 485 Health Childcare Best Buys Your Money

If they are to be marinated, covering them with cling film will prevent ——lage to the vitamins by exposure to air. When frying mushrooms, cook quickly to retain the goodness. To microwave mushrooms, cook with a little butter, margarine or stock on full power for about four minutes. To freeze mushrooms, saute 450g of sliced mushrooms in 50g of butter and 5ml of lemon juice for 1-2 minutes. Cool and store in freezer bags. more > Home File Index 480 Fit & Well 485 Health Childcare Best Buys Your Money

They are best eaten within three days of purchase. Do not wash cultivated mushrooms and there is no need to peel them or remove their stalks. The whole mushroom is edible and the skin contains nutrients and flavour. Just wipe them with a damp cloth and they are ready for use. Always slice mushrooms with stalks down. A sprinkle of lemon will prevent discolouration. more follows > Home File Index 480 Fit & Well 485 Health Childcare Best Buys Your Money
