Pickled Mushrooms

As a salad or appetizer, these tangy mushrooms are a welcome addition to any meal or party buffet table. It doesn't take long for a whole bowlful to be devoured. I love to cook with fresh mushrooms - a crop our state is well known for. -Sandra Johnson, Tioga, Pennsylvania

    I recall preparing these mushrooms (it was quite sometime back when I'd seen them featured in Taste of Home! I found them to be very tasty! I'd used 10-oz. TO 1 lb. of fresh mushrooms and instead of tarragon vinegar, I've used either cider vinegar OR wine vinegar!At that time, I'd used just a dash of red pepper flakes since I'd had those on hand when I made these mushrooms! Thank you for sharing this recipe! delowenstein

    I've made these for years, only using wine vinegar because I don't like tarragon. They are always the first thing to disappear at a party!
