Dried Wild Porcini Mushrooms
|Bag size||28 grams|
Porcini mushrooms are prized in Italian and French cuisine because they add an unmistakable meaty richness, earthy aroma, and big umami flavor to every dish. In many culinary circles, Porcini mushrooms are considered the 'king of mushrooms,' thanks to their bold flavor, tender yet firm texture, and surprising versatility. Porcini grow in the moist forest understory and are picked between August and October. And, while they are best known for flavoring risottos, pastas, broths, and stews, the possibilities are endless.
To reconstitute, rinse with water to clean. If you're not in a rush, soak in lukewarm water for 2-3 hours (as it extracts less of the flavor than hot water, leaving more of their mushroomy goodness). If you're pressed for time, you can pour hot water over them and soak for 30 minutes or until they become tender. Retain the soaking liquid for use in recipes that call for a kick of bold flavor. Just be aware that a little goes a very long way!
North Spore dried wild mushrooms are wildcrafted and foraged from North American forests.

These were freaking awesome! Better than Italian porcini!
These dried porcini remind me of the ones you find in shops in the mountains west of Parma, Italy. And I can get them quickly right here in the USA. Not quite a trip to Italy, but the taste is right.
I was able to make a really nice soup using these mushrooms and a few others. I would Def buy again. And i will soon!
