Benefits of Quick Blanching
The quick blanching process preserves the firm texture and snowy whiteness and extends the shelf life of pre-sliced mushrooms. Plus, they minimize waste both from trim and the 33 percent shrinkage that occurs when fresh mushrooms are cooked. With quick blanched mushrooms, the drained weight in the container is all usable with no shrinkage. They are competitively priced with canned and frozen mushrooms but far superior in texture, color and taste – especially when labor, waste and shrinkage are factored in.
When refrigerated at 35°, Country Fresh quick blanched mushrooms will stay delicious, fully white and firm-textured for at least three months. Once opened and refrigerated, they remain fresh for a full 14 days.
