mushroom stems

chewy_bakah | Feb 6, 2009 06:40 AM

Some receipes call for removing the stem and I have also heard on some cooking shows.

Assumming the stem is not woody, what would the other reason be for removing the stem and not including it. Does the stem contain something that would be good for the dish? Why do receipes call for removing the stem even if it is just button mushrooms?

Thanks in advance!
