How to Freeze Oyster Mushrooms

Oyster mushrooms grow shelf-like on various types of trees and can reach 8 inches in width. A low-fat and high-protein food, they are often used in cooking as a substitute for seafood because of their oyster-like flavor and texture. As oyster mushrooms tend to go bad within a few days, proper storage is crucial for long-term use. Try blanching freshly cut oyster mushrooms before freezing to kill the enzymes and keep mushrooms from losing consistency
