And Gill them Too


Gilling Mushrooms

The mushrooms for the Mushroom Patties, not only needed to be peeled but gilled as well.  In the picture, I am scraping out the Gills with a spoon.  The gills of a mushroom maximize the surface area on which mushroom spores are produced and hold up the cap but the gills can also discolor a receipt (recipe).  Visit my website at:
