Instant Marinated Mushrooms with Weston Vacuum Sealer Canisters

This marinated mushroom recipe pairs perfectly with wild game steaks and other smoked meats. If you're a hunter who processes your own game especially, the Realtree Vacuum Sealer and Vacuum Sealer Canisters are incredibly practical. You can prepare the most flavorful game dishes as well as sides with one easy to use machine. And if you're a foodie who strives for the boldest flavors, the Michael Symon Vacuum Sealer and Canisters might be a wise investment. You can quick- marinate and pickle until your fingers are sore with its repetitive use advantage (translation: you can use it over and over without it overheating - other vacuum sealers need to rest) and high vacuum strength. Either way, you can't go wrong. Just like you can't go wrong with these marinated  mushrooms!

1 lb fresh mushrooms
1 cup white wine vinegar
1 cup olive oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 dried red chile, sliced
1 sprig thyme
2 bay leaves
2 teaspoons dried parsley
2 teaspoons sea salt
2 teaspoons cracked pepper

Weston Vacuum Sealer Canisters

Put all of the ingredients into a Weston Vacuum Sealer Canister, then fill with water, leaving about a centimeter of head space. This will help keep the mushrooms submerged in the marinade.

Insert one end of the vacuum hose into the accessory port on the vacuum sealer. Insert the other end of the accessory hose into the port on the lid of the canister. Turn the knob on the canister to the seal position. Press the marinate button twice, then press the start button. This will engage the 20 minute marinate process. The vacuum sealer will begin a process of vacuum and rest over the span of 20 minutes. Once it is finished, it will sound to let you know.

Once it has finished, press the accessory button. This will vacuum and seal it a final time. Now you may place it in your refrigerator to finish marinating over night.

If you're in a hurry, the 20 minute marination will infuse the mushrooms with plenty of flavor, and you can skip the rest. The final marination in the refrigerator just ensures that you get the fullest flavors. When you are ready for the mushrooms, just turn the dial on the canister to open. Reseal the canister and refrigerate if you end up with leftovers.

Sometimes I buy mushrooms in bulk, but I've never tried this before. This is worth trying at home, so thanks for sharing the recipe with us.
