Mushroom Tip # 3 – Salt them at the End

Seasoning food often and early is a good rule of thumb, except when it comes to mushrooms. Salt tends to draw the moisture out of ingredients, so if you’re cooking mushrooms, salting too early will draw the water out and cause the mushrooms to steam. See Tip #2 for why it’s not a good idea to steam mushrooms. Season them when they’re done cooking.
