Mushrooms with beer vinegar

This lovely recipe comes from our great friend and mentor Shirley Scott (AKA Shirl the Purl), bestselling co-author of the Saltwater Mittens series and knitting historian.  Besides being an incredible textile artist, Shirley lives her life fully and authentically and that includes enjoying great simple food. Her recipe for beer vinegar mushrooms is a revelation – something about the vinegar elevates the mushrooms into sheer ambrosia of textured yumminess.  Serve hot, cold, at room temperature, as a side dish, in a sandwich, or as an appetizer.

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • Add mushrooms to remaining ingredients and stir well to coat.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Brush a sheet pan lightly with oil or line with parchment.

  • Serve hot as a side dish or cocktail nibble. Cold leftovers are excellent in a sandwich, sliced thinly or puréed.
