Yields: 2 pints

Ingredients

1 pound button mushrooms, petite if possible
1 1/2 cups white wine vinegar
1 3/4 cups water
2 1/2 Tablespoons of sugar
1 bay leaf
pinch or dried chili flakes
3 whole cloves
1 garlic clove, peeled and smashed
one good pinch of salt

You will also need: 2 pint jars, lids and rings, washed well

Directions

Wash and pat the mushrooms dry. Trim the stems down a bit just to remove the end, save the trimmed stems for making stock.

In a medium size pan, combine the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil over medium high heat. When boiling reduce heat to a simmer and add the mushrooms. Cook the mushrooms for 5-6 minutes.

Remove from heat. Lift the mushrooms out of the vinegar solution. Cool the mushrooms and vinegar separately.

Once cool, divide the mushrooms between the two pint jars. Cap and store in the refrigerator for up to a week. They can be eaten in as little as 24 hours but the longer they pickle the more developed their flavor will be.

NOTE: These are great served up with a toothpick for a little bite or used in something bigger like an Antipasto Platter with fresh mozzarella, cured olives, sliced prosciutto and the like.
