When it boils, reduce heat to medium and cook 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally and removing the foam. Boiled mushrooms thoroughly under running water and drain in a colander to drain the water. Then place them in the prepared dishes – a pot or jar, sprinkling the spices and herbs. Boil the brine at the rate of 200 of salt per 1 liter of water and pour white so that they were completely covered with brine.
