In the meantime clean the mushrooms using a soft brush (don’t rinse them in water). Keep the smaller ones in one piece, chop the larger ones up into bite-size chunks. Add the mushrooms to the garlic.

  7. The mushrooms should be submerged fully. Put the jar aside to cool. Don’t close the jar until it has reached room temperature! Once fully cooled, close the jar and put it in the fridge overnight to marinate. The day after remove the jar from the fridge 30 minutes before serving. Transfer the mushrooms to a clean bowl and serve.
