Marinated Mushroom Medley


I had leftover mushroom parts from different recipes, including the stem of a monster porcini [look right!], a handful of shitakes from D's Barley-Stuffed Pumpkin, and some oyster mushrooms. I decided to marinate them for a surprise Thanksgiving bite.

Ingredients

  • 1 C water
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 T fresh oregano
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 t anise seeds
  • 3 to 4 C mushroom (parts)
  • 2 T vinegar (I used a white balsamic)

Procedure
Place the water, lemon juice, oregano, and anise seeds in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Let boil for 10 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms, making sure they are coated in liquid. Cook for another 10 minutes, then remove from the heat. Season with salt and pepper. Let stand for an hour. Stir in the vinegar. Place in a jar or container so that the mushrooms are completely submerged. Marinate for at least 24 hours before serving.

    1. Thanks, Wendy! Yes, I hate to waste food, so we try to come up with creative ways to use them.
