The One Vegetable You Should Never, Ever Wash

You know those mushrooms you sautéed last week that completely refused to get crispy? We have the solution.

We’re guessing you tossed them in the colander and gave them a shower. Makes a lot of sense, since they’re usually caked with dirt. 

But here’s the thing: When it comes to mushrooms, water is the enemy of everything delicious. That’s because they’re porous and soak up moisture like a sponge. So no matter how you cook ’em, they’ll always end up mushy. 

The solution? Brush your mushrooms instead. This quirky mushroom brush has stiff bristles that quickly remove every last speck of dirt, priming them for perfectly Crispy Mushrooms or Baked Chicken and Mushroom Risotto.

Hey, now you know.
