Margin's Marinated Mushrooms

I bought a bag of little mushrooms from a stall at Eveleigh Farmer's Markets recently. They came from Margin's Mushrooms who grow their mushrooms in an old disused abattoir in Woy Woy, north of Sydney.

I saw a little sign on the stall, labelling these tiny mushrooms "marinating mushrooms". I had to try making the. A recipe guide was included with the little bag of mushrooms, along with some fresh herbs.

They were very quick and easy to make, and made a tasty little snack!

Marinated Mushrooms recipe

(adapted from the Margin's Marinated Mushrooms recipe)

Step 1 ingredients and method:

  • 200grms small mushrooms
  • 100mls apple cider vinegar
  • 350mls water

Bring the vinegar and water to the boil in a saucepan. Place the mushrooms into the liquid and boil for 2 minutes. Remove mushrooms and keep the liquid.

Step 2 ingredients and method:

  • 60mls olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, smashed
  • fresh herbs (for example thyme sprigs, bay leaves, sage)
  • a piece of lemon rind
  • salt and pepper

Heat a saucepan/frypan with the olive oil. Add the garlic, fresh herbs, lemon rind, salt and pepper. Cook this mixture for a few minutes to let the flavours infuse into the oil. Add the mushrooms to the pan with a small amount of the vinegar/water mixture, stir to coat the mushrooms in the oil. Remove the pan from the heat. Place the mushrooms, with the oil/garlic/herb mixture into a jar.
