Mushrooms Crimini Organic
Crimini mushrooms can be eaten raw or cooked, and can be substituted for white mushrooms in any recipe. Immediately before using fresh crimini mushrooms, clean them gently with a brush or cloth towel, and remove the base of the stem. When serving crimini mushrooms raw, sprinkle them with lemon juice or vinegar to prevent them from turning brown.

Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled "organic," a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified.
