Homemade Pickled Mushrooms

Taste of homemade pickled mushrooms can’t be beaten by any brand from the store. If you pickle mushrooms yourself you can control spiciness and acidity to make sure they taste exactly as you want them to.

Champignon mushrooms are most commonly available that is why I used them, but this marinate will work for edible wild mushrooms: boletuses, honey mushrooms and other edible mushrooms as well. However for wild mushrooms you will need to increase boiling time and maybe change water trough boiling at least once.

Mushrooms pickled this way can be stored in the fridge for long time, if you want to preserve them outside of the fridge – use sealing jars and follow the instructions for proper sealing; however I don’t see a reason to do so: champignons are commonly available in every store and you can pickle them as much as you want without actually sealing into jars.

How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: I didn’t have 9% vinegar on my hands, only 70% acetic aced, so I diluted it 1 parts to 7 parts to get something close to 9%:

First, thank you for the recipe. The only distilled white vinegar I’m able to get is the Heinz variety and that is 5%. Will that work without having to purchase straight acetic acid and doing the dilution process? I wouldn’t begin to even guess as to where to purchase 9% vinegar, let alone straight acetic acid!

there are some wild mushrooms that are poison when raw buts good to eat when cooked, be very cautious about eating raw wild mushrooms

Thanks Julia! Just wonder — what if I don’t cook/boil but just put all the ingredients into a jar? Will it work? A pro’s word 🙂

Thanks so much for the recipe. Looks wonderful. Many French speaking individuals will find the reference to “champignons” amusing. This is the French word for mushroom. So I think you mean that small button mushrooms are what to look for in this recipe.

My Aunt Stasha used to make pickled mushrooms that were slimy and ABSOLUTELY delicious!!! I was 12 years old at the time (many life times ago), and have never been able to find a recipe! Can someone help me? Please email me. mulclb2695@gmail.com
