Mushroom Freezing Revelation

A few weeks ago, my weekly meal plan got a little thrown off and I had mushrooms in my fridge that started to get a little close to the end of their shelf life.  I literally had no idea what I wanted to do with them...I kept waiting for the lightbulb to go didn't.  After some internet research on whether or not freezing mushrooms was do-able, all that turned up was loads of mixed results.  I was annoyed, and since it started to seem like they were just going to be thrown down the disposal in a couple of days I figured let's just try it.  We tried a method that some say may make the mushrooms taste less "mushroomy".  I figured that a less potent mushroom taste was a risk I was willing to take.  All I did was initially freeze the mushrooms laying flat on a baking sheet.  After they were frozen, I threw them all into a tupperware, and then put the tupperware into a freezer bag.  I'm not even sure that the freezer bag was necessary, but whatevs.  When I was finally ready to use the mushrooms...they were fine!  I didn't notice any lack of a "mushroomy" taste, so I guess that this is a food preservation win!  Patting myself on the back for that one!
