Look for fresh mushrooms that are blemish-free, without slimy spots or signs of decay. When sealed in plastic, mushrooms quickly become slimy and moldy. Remove from carton and refrigerate, unwashed, in a paper bag. The paper absorbs excess moisture and allows the mushrooms to breathe. Or, remove plastic wrap from carton and wrap carton in paper towels.
Thyme and rosemary stems are woody and undesirable to eat. To remove the leaves in one quick motion, hold the top of the stem in one hand and strip off the leaves with the fingertips of your other hand. The stems do have flavour and can be added to roasted foods, but remove them before serving. Or, try adding the stems to hot coals before grilling to add extra flavour to grilled food.
