Pickled Mushrooms

Pickled Mushrooms  This is an easy appetizer that can be prepared in advance and takes less than 20 minutes….then It just has to sit until the party. I love pickled stuff so it’s one of my favorites. Try it if you like that vinegary taste and I’m sure you will love it too.


  • 1 pound button mushrooms
  • 2/3 cup tarragon (white) vinegar
  • 1/2 cup good quality olive oil
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Dash pepper
  • Dash hot pepper sauce
  • 1 medium onion in separated, sliced rings

Clean the mushrooms. (Do not soak them in water but just clean under running water) Remove stems if you desire. Combine all ingredients except mushrooms and onions and mix well. Add mushrooms and onions. The mushrooms should be submerged in the liquid. Let them rest in a covered dish for about 5 hours, or you can refrigerate for 8 hours. Stir occasionally, it’s easiest to seal them in a plastic container and flip them over now and then.

Leave out the onions if you don’t like onions, or have an allergy of course. And you can also use red wine vinegar or even add a bit of red wine….wine always helps.
