Earlier I said that you would hear from Aunt Dottie again. Here is another of her mushroom (from mushroom country) recipes. Mushrooms are grown in the dark, in a building (a mushroom house). They are grown in flats only inches apart and when they are harvested, the person harvesting wears a cap like a miner’s cap with a light on it so they can see. They pick only the ones that are ready. I believe they pick every day.
Creamed Mushrooms Aunt Dottie
Wash, slice or quarter 1 pound or so mushrooms. In saucepan with cover put 4 tablespoons butter. Add mushrooms, cover and let make its own broth over medium heat. Cook about 3 minutes, simmering in the broth. Add 1 cup top milk or half & half (or ½ cup milk and ½ cup evaporated milk), thickened with 1 to 2 tablespoons flour made into paste. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper. Simmer and serve hot on toast or as a vegetable.
