Easy Pickled Mushrooms

Pickling Mushrooms is (surprisingly) easy! Follow the instructions to make pickled mushrooms that will last in your fridge for up to a month!

Estonia is a small country in Europe and, despite its beauty, isn’t visited very frequently. If you want to travel to Estonia but aren’t able to (or if you want to remember a trip that you had once taken), these pickled mushrooms are a great way to do so!

Clean the mushrooms, making sure to remove any excess dirt.



Bring water to a boil. Add the mushrooms and boil them for about 10 minutes. When finished, drain the water away from the mushrooms.

In a separate, small pot, add the marinade ingredients. Bring them to a boil.


In a large jar, stuff the mushrooms. You can add garlic cloves, onion, and thyme amongst the mushrooms for flavor!


Pour the boiled marinade into the jar, covering all of the mushrooms. Let the mushrooms sit for about 3 days before enjoying.


In addition to onions, Estonians sometimes add carrots into their jars of pickled mushrooms as well.


You can mix different types of mushrooms in one jar if you’d like– It’s the Estonian way.
