Marinated champignons: quick recipe

Marinated champignons according to this quick and simple recipe turn out much tastier than store-bought mushrooms. They are ideal as a cold appetizer with fried meat or baked chicken. Mushrooms can be added to various salads, used for filling tartlets or making canapés.

The taste of mushrooms can be diversified by changing the composition of spices and herbs for the marinade. Rosemary, thyme, oregano, ginger – all these spices can add a unique taste to the snack. When choosing champignons for pickling, try to choose fresh and young mushrooms that have a whole cap. Young champignons contain less water and retain their shape better after cooking.

Glass jars with airtight lids are best suited for storing pickled champignons. Glass does not interact with vinegar and does not change the taste of mushrooms. The finished snack can be stored in the refrigerator for 7-10 days.
