    Frozen Sliced Mushrooms (Where ? ) 26th May 11 at 10:38 AM
    A little while ago I bought a bag of sliced frozen mushrooms at Lidl which I found very convenient being I dont use mushrooms that often the problem is I think it was a 1 off at Lidl so would anyone know which of the supermarkets sell them. Thanks

    Strangely enough, I just bought some from Heron Foods on Monday.
    Not a shop I use, but was picking up some stuff for someone.

    50% extra free bag - so 750g for £1. I thought this was fairly cheap and I only use them with spag bol etc.

    May not be of any help to you but when they are reduced I buy a lot up cut them up and freeze them myself. Work lovely in most things.

    If you find some mushrooms in the produce whoopsies, then cut them up into pieces big enough for what you use them for, bag them up in quantities you use them in and freeze them.

    Did that to a huge box of mushrooms (500g) that I bought for 15p. Did a few spag bols, chilli con carne and casseroles.

    What are they like once they're defrosted? I've been tempted to get some but worried they'll be a bit slimy.

    I know, but do they lose much of their texture i.e. go mushy/slimy?

    The whoopsied mushrooms I've sliced n frozen are pretty disgusting. They were fine when they went in the freezer.
    They taste rubbery and look black. There is a lot of water that is released when they are cooked too.

    They may be ok in stews etc but for a bacon butty (which is what I was hoping to use them up in) they are pretty yuck.

    I haven't tried shop bought ones so cannot vouch for those.

    I bought these yesterday, great for soups, omelettes and to add to casseroles. Put them in towards end if making a casserole, otherwise go soggy.

    Soggy warning...
    I agree about the soggy rule. Whatever you do, don't try to fry frozen mushrooms with your cooked breakfast!

    There is too much water in them and they will go black and soggy. Good for chucking in bolognese near the end of cooking though
