Russian marinated mushrooms (perfect for the appetizer)

This is something very simple that I always have in my closet when I receive people unexpectedly at my house. I serve them either just like that or with a little cream cheese with herbs on it as a quick appetizer, which changes from peanuts and savory appetizer cakes which are so unhealthy.

Ingredients for a jar:

  • 1 kilo of small button mushrooms
  • 40 cl of wine vinegar
  • 20 cl of water
  • 6 cloves (or 10 juniper seeds)
  • 10 black peppercorns
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 sugar cubes
  • oil
  • salt

Preparation:

  1. Cut off the earthy stems of the mushrooms and wash them with vinegar water.
  2. Cook them in a pot of cold water for 5 minutes on low heat after boiling. Drain and let cool completely.
  3. Prepare the marinade with the vinegar, water, sugar, salt, bay leaf, pepper and cloves (which can be replaced to taste with 10 juniper seeds).
  4. Bring to a boil and simmer over low heat, covered, for about fifteen minutes.
  5. Let cool.
  6. Pack the mushrooms in a glass jar. Cover with marinade. Pour a layer of oil on the surface, for good conservation.
  7. Close carefully and store in a dry, dark and cool place.
  8. Wait 2 weeks before tasting.
