White mushrooms can be eaten raw or cooked. They are often served in salads and with dips, or can be added to soups, sauces, egg dishes, casseroles, and stews. Immediately before using fresh white mushrooms, clean them gently with a cloth or soft brush and remove the base of the stem. When serving white mushrooms raw, sprinkle them with lemon juice or vinegar to prevent them from turning brown.
White mushrooms with small caps are sometimes referred to as “button” mushrooms, while mushrooms with large caps are called “jumbo.” They are sold fresh, canned, and dried.
