How to Store Maitake Mushrooms?

fldhkybnva | Apr 8, 2013 04:18 PM

I usually buy crimini mushrooms but while at H Mart this evening decided to try out maitake as I've heard that they are a quite enjoyable species of mushroom. They are in a plastic sealed bag similar to the photo posted. I plan to use them in 3 or 4 days, and read somewhere it's best to keep them in the original packaging or stash in a paper bag but the original packaging doesn't seem to keep criminis very fresh so I thought I'd see if anyone had some advice. Is it OK to leave them in the plastic in the fridge or should I put them in a paper bag? TIA
