4 half pint jars



prep Time

10 min



– 3 pounds button mushrooms cut them in half if they’re large – 1/2 cup lemon juice I used fresh, you could use bottled – Water enough to cover mushrooms – 1 1/4 cups white wine vinegar with 5% acidity – 1 cup pure olive oil – 5 garlic cloves peeled and left whole – 1 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt – 2 teaspoons dried oregano – 2 teaspoon dried parsley or basil – 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Do mushrooms shrink when you cook them? Yes! They shrink a lot. So if you plan to make this to have extra, double everything. Three pounds of mushrooms may seem like a lot raw, just keep in mind they will shrink down on the quick boil in the lemon water.

How Long Can I Marinate Mushrooms? A full 24 hours is ideal for the mushrooms to absorb all the marinade flavor. Even two to three days would be better to get the full impact of this fantastic marinade’s flavor!  How to store marinated mushrooms? How long do they last? The best way to store marinated mushrooms is to keep them refrigerated in glass jars. In my opinion, keeping them chilled keeps the mushrooms more firm and with all the fresh marinade flavor. These mushrooms can be refrigerated for up to two weeks.
