Laurel's Marinated Mushrooms (Easy Canning) Recipe - (2024)


Submitted by Chef PotPie

"I've been making these for more than 20 years. I usually give them in holiday gift baskets, and if I don't, then I'm in trouble! Not only are they delicious tasting, they are very pretty, too! Only one thing about this recipe is that you have to find tiny mushrooms, 1-1/4 inch or less across, and that might not be easy. Our Fred Meyer store sells them, and when I'm ready to can them, I just pick up the whole case out of the produce section and plop it in my cart! This recipe came from my county exchange master canner, 1989."

  1. The 20 min processing time seems high. Do you happen to live in a higher altitude or do the mushrooms need that long to get to the right texture?


  2. can you use wild mushrooms?

  3. How long are these good for once the water bath is complete? Are they shelf stable or do they need to be refrigerated?

  1. I couldn't find the tiny mushrooms so I used the regular button mushrooms from the grocery store. One pound of mushrooms made one pint jar. I made one batch of sliced mushrooms and the other whole mushrooms. I think I prefer the whole ones for ease of use. The marinade tasted delicious and I have high hopes these are going to be awesome in six weeks. Very easy recipe. The hard part is waiting until they are going to be ready. Thanks!


  2. This is the best mushroom recipe. We like it better than the one in the store. I wondered what to do with all the stems since was not going to make any soup soon so did 2 jars of the stems...they did not last even a day before were gone. Thanks for sharing.


  3. I found a really good deal on mushrooms and had saved this recipe for "future use". We loved it. I definetly will be making this again. Thank you for this post.Bonnie P

  4. I used crimini mushrooms and put double the pimento in them. I haven't been able to eat them yet though because I have to wait the 6 weeks. However, they look soooo good I don't know if I'm going to be able to wait that long! Sorry the photo is sideways. It's upright in my photo gallery...

  5. I was thrilled to find a new canning recipe especially for something really different from the usual canned tomato products or jam/jelly. This is a good recipe that makes a very good product. I did several jars of sliced mushrooms as well as small whole mushrooms and both turned out well. Canned in small jelly jars make the size just right to put over a couple of salads. In pints, they will make a nice hostess or holiday gift. I'm very pleased that I came across this recipe and recommend it to others.
