Closed cup

The most popular type of mushroom available, closed cup or button mushrooms have creamy white caps with pink gills which darken to beige as they grow.

How to Use

Closed cup mushrooms are served raw or cooked. Raw mushrooms can be included in salads. Cooked mushrooms can be included in a wide variety of dishes including omelettes, risottos, pasta sauces, quiches, soups and stews.

How to Prepare

All mushrooms should be washed and dried with kitchen towel before use. Leave the mushrooms whole or slice as necessary.

How to Cook

Closed cup mushrooms are best sautéed. Heat a little butter in a frying pan and fry for 4–5 minutes or add to dishes 5–10 minutes before the end of cooking time. They can also be stir-fried, grilled, roasted or poached in the microwave.

How to Store

Keep in a paper bag in the fridge for up to 3 days. Do not store them in a plastic bag because they will sweat and quickly spoil
