Bunny's Marinated Mushrooms

Whenever our family gets together you could always count on one of us making these wonderful mushrooms. My sister Bunny introduced them to the family, and they have been a hit ever since. Why does everyone gobble them up? Because they are just scrumptious!

This recipe will make quite a bit, but can easily be reduced to half.. If you find you have any leftover.. toss them into a nice garden salad. They make a wonderful addition.

Bunny's Marinated Mushrooms

3 lbs mushrooms - cut into bite size pieces
2 oz salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
1 TBLS chopped (small) red onion
1 pint red wine vinegar
1/2 pint soybean vegetable oil
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tsp white pepper
2 oz sugar
4 garlic cloves, crushed & diced

Wash the mushrooms thoroughly & pat dry. Cut into bite sized pieces and put them in a large bowl. Add all of the seasons, oil, vinegar. Mix very well.. cover, and refrigerate for three days. Each day stir the mushrooms. Serve these marinated mushrooms at room temperature.

I like to add these to antipasto or relish tray during the holidays. They make a nice gift as well. Enjoy!
