Then we leave them in the sink for several minutes, so that the glass is excess moisture. Then, using a sharp kitchen knife, we rid each of the roots, dip the mushrooms with paper kitchen towels, put them on a cutting board and chop them with layers, quarters, cubes or pieces of arbitrary shape up to 1 centimeter thick.
