Before cooking hats of fresh slippery jacks peel, wash and dry.


Slippery jacks thrown into the cold water to provide sufficient water to the mushrooms were completely covered it. Fresh slippery jacks cook for 30-35 minutes. Time start to count from the moment of boiling water. In the event of doubt as to the species of mushrooms cooked replace the water during cooking (1-2 times) or give up their consumption! If we do not have any doubt, changing the water during cooking it is not necessary. When cooking, we take off the foam. At the end of the cooking water with salt. For flavor you can add pepper, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, marjoram, bay leaf. Cook covered. Cooked mushrooms are soft and delicate.


When cooked, drain off slippery jacks and dry.


Slippery jacks may be a treat or added to other dishes (groats, rice or vegetables). They can also be very good main ingredient of mushroom soup, sauce or marinade.

Bon appétit!
