For the Basil Pesto:
It’s important to buy mushrooms that are fresh. The gills of fresh portabellas should be dry, and a light mushroom brown color — they are edible so there’s no need to trim them off. If the mushrooms are black and bruised-looking, they’re old.
If you can, avoid buying pre-packed portabella mushroom caps. You need to be able to see the color of the gills underneath, and the way they’re usually packed, it’s impossible to know what you’ve bought until you get them home.
