How Long Do Mushrooms Last

How Long Do Mushrooms Last?

Question: I love to cook with mushrooms, and add them to many of my dishes. Is it smart to stock up on mushrooms to keep in my kitchen? How long do mushrooms last?

Answer: While you can’t give a standard answer for how long they do last, a good benchmark would be to say that mushrooms can be stored for a week.

It’s good to keep in mind that fresh whole mushrooms can last for up to 10 days, while fresh sliced mushrooms have a slightly shorter shelf life (around 5-7 days). If you were hoping to store some cooked mushrooms, they are also good for consumption for 7-10 days.

As with all ingredients, proper storage will extend their shelf life. As mushrooms are fungi, it’s essential to make sure mushrooms don’t spoil from any excess moisture.

Before consuming mushrooms, check for any signs of spoilage. If they have become darker in color, developed a slimy outer coating, or emit an unpleasant odor, it’s time to get some new mushrooms. Better safe than sorry!
