Remarks
It's easiest to use cultivated button mushrooms (that the French call champignons de Paris), even tinned mushrooms, but if you can, use freshly-gathered wild mushrooms, as the flavour will be so much better.

You can also add a handful of dried mushrooms (morels, chanterelles, etc.), simply rinsed. Again this willl improve the flavour, making it not only stronger, but woody.
Keeping
A few days in the fridge in a sealed container.
