Harvested fresh mushrooms are subject to mandatory processing. They can not be stored for a long time. Carefully clean the hats of debris on the back of the knife, removing adhered pieces of earth, moss, leaves. Then turn the mushroom over and use a soft brush to clean the plates. Dirty foot spots can simply be cut off. Rinse the mushrooms with running water, cut into slices and dry.
