Joy’s Thai Food Tips #3: Keeping Straw Mushrooms

Straw mushrooms tend to spoil quickly – about one day.

If you boil them with salty water and then freeze them they will keep until next time you want to use them. No, they won’t be as tasty, but they will be unspoiled!

Most Asian markets in the USA, Europe and elsewhere have straw mushrooms in vacuum sealed cans that you can buy.

      To make it vegan.. you mean no use of product from animal at all or eggs and fish sauce are ok?
      I guess you can skip the meat part then keep everything else the same. 🙂
