Marinovannie Gribi – Marinated Mushrooms


     1 lb (500 g) ordinary mushrooms or
     oyster mushrooms
     2 garlic cloves
     2 cloves
     1 bay leaf
     3 peppercorns
     1 Tbs sugar
     1 tsp salt
     1¼ cups (250 ml) red wine vinegar


  • Wash the mushrooms and remove the stalks.
  • With the exception of the oil bring the rest of the ingredients to the boil in just over  ½ cup (125 ml) of water, then add the mushrooms.
  • Remove the saucepan lid and leave to simmer on a reduced heat,  until the mushrooms sink to the bottom of the saucepan.
  • Remove the garlic and leave the stock to cool.
  • Place the mushrooms in the fluid in jars and pour on the oil so that a film forms on the surface of the fluid, thus providing a seal.
  • Cover so that the jars are airtight and refrigerate for 10 days.
