Canned Mushrooms

Canned mushrooms are great! I love them! Some people hate mushrooms with a heated passion. Sorry about that!

I mostly use them on the quick and usual frozen pizza and definitely on my homemade fresh pizza I whip up at home. I do have one tip and most people already know this: after draining the mushrooms, smash them down even more with a wood spoon or whatever you can find to drive the water out of them. It's unbelievable how much water mushrooms absorb. If you don't get that water out of them your pizza will become a soggy mess. The oven heat won't be enough to dry them out, so give them a boost with the smashing treatment!

I did a little research on white mushrooms. Did you know that Pennsylvania is the leading state producing agaricus (white) mushrooms with California being second? Fresh mushrooms are grown and proccessed at a staggering 800 million pounds a year verses canned at 100 million (rough estimates).

That's just white mushroom production. That doesn't include criminis, portabellas, shiitake, oyster, wood ear, enoki, morels and chanterelles! It's a huge, mind blowing big market. Here's a short video that I thought was pretty interesting. It gives a certain perspective on a day in the life of a mushroom grower. I can tell you that it makes me think twice about the .49 cents I pay for a 4 Oz can of mushrooms! Anyway, it's interesting; give it a watch. Of course, if you need mushrooms, ahem, you know exactly who to order from, right?
