Although in our country these banks do not always survive even until the New Year. No, they don't spoil. They just get eaten much sooner.

Marinade Ingredients:

  • A couple of teaspoons of granulated sugar, to taste
  • 80 milliliters of nine percent vinegar
  • Tablespoon of salt
  • 2 glasses of water

For each bank:

  • Lavrushka
  • A few peppercorns

Preparation of pickled mushrooms:

1. One of the most important steps in marinating mushrooms is their preparation. In order for the jars to stand for a long time and their contents not deteriorate, you need to select only good mushrooms, not spoiled. They need to be washed very thoroughly, if necessary, and cleaned.


2. Fill with water, add a little salt and boil for 15 minutes. Keep time from boiling. If there is foam, it must be removed. If you cook other mushrooms, then you need to do this for at least an hour.

3. Then you need to drain all the water and wash the mushrooms. You can simply dump the contents of the pan into a clean sink and rinse it there.

4. Dissolve sugar and salt in water. Put on the stove and wait until it boils. The exact amount of liquid depends on how many mushrooms you intend to cook. Then pour vinegar here and wait for it to boil again.

To prevent the glass from bursting during a sharp temperature drop, you can put the jar, for example, on a cold baking sheet.

6. Cover with lids without twisting. Put a towel in the pot. Put banks on it.

7. Pour water about 2 cm below the neck so that it does not boil into jars. After boiling, boil over low heat for half an hour.

6. Now the jars can be rolled up and turned over onto the lids. Cover "under a fur coat" and leave until the next day. They are then successfully stored in the basement.

2. After washing, when they are completely clean, lay them out on a towel or cloth tablecloth so that they are freed from excess moisture. It is important that they are well frozen, without excess ice.

3. First, I propose to do the legs. Separate them from the caps and grind in a meat grinder. You can also use a blender or food processor.

How to dry porcini mushrooms for the winter at home in the oven

Dried mushrooms are very convenient to use in winter. It's easy to store them too. I love making soup out of them. It turns out very tasty and fragrant. I suggest you dry the mushrooms in a very convenient way - in the oven.



  • White mushrooms in the required amount


1. First of all, of course, you need to rinse the mushrooms. Do this very carefully so that no contamination remains. It is very important. Cut them into slices, about half a centimeter thick.

If you want to dry the mushrooms, then you should wash them very carefully, without excess water. It's not even worth soaking them. I recommend wiping them with a damp sponge or go over the surface with a knife


2. Then put them on some kind of cloth napkin, which you don’t mind getting dirty. It is necessary to get rid of excess moisture after washing. I cut both legs and hats.

3. Line the baking sheet with parchment. Spread the mushrooms on the surface in an even layer so that the slices do not lie on top of each other. Heat the oven to 50 degrees. Send them to the oven for about 2-2.5 hours. In this case, the door should be slightly ajar so that excess moisture comes out.


4. The slices will significantly decrease in size during this time. If you, for example, cooked them on two baking sheets, now you can freely combine them in one. Now add power to 70 degrees and dry them in the same way, with the oven door ajar, for 2 hours.

5. Now again you need to reduce the power, to 60 degrees and dry them until they are ready, 2 or 3 hours. More precisely, look at the case. The slices must be completely dry. Break when broken.

6. In total, the mushrooms are dried for about 7 hours. Therefore, I do this on weekends in the morning. Although it takes a lot of time, the process itself is simple, does not require a constant presence in the kitchen.
