Why do I love mushrooms but not if they're in soups etc?
I really love mushrooms. They're probably my favourite veg (I know they're not strictly a veg). I'm not adventuress with varieties though only sticking to flat and button mushrooms. When I come to try things like mushroom soup, I cannot abide the taste. I can't describe it it's like an off putting, over powering taste and that's all I taste. I get similar (not always) in things like pies that have mushrooms in them. Last night I'd bought a ready filled yorkshire pudding with beef, potatoes and veg. It wasn't great and I know HM would have been loads better but I wanted/needed an easy meal. A couple of bites in and I remarked to husband that there was something in it that I disliked and could taste it. Afterwards I checked the packaging and mushrooms are about the 5th ingrediant listed, so it had been that. I decided to try and google and see why this happens and didn't really find anything which is why I'm asking here if anyone can explain. Currently I just add mushrooms to things like stews, curries, seperately at the end to avoid this happening when I cook, but I'd dearly love to know if I could ever make myself say a HM mushroom soup and it taste completely different to any tinned variety I buy.
