Found growing naturally in the wild hidden amongst the forest under bushes and pines, Porcini mushrooms are beloved by chefs, cooks, and food lovers alike. The Porcini is a versatile mushroom that is used in soups, stews, stocks, sauces, pastas, rices, you name it. The prized boletus edulis fungi is used in recipes the world over from Italy, France, Spain, and all throughout Asia. The meaty umami-ness of Porcini makes these mushrooms a must have for any mushroom lover.
What do Porcini taste like?
Often described as meaty, earthy, woody and umami porcini are a favorite in many cuisines. Our dried porcini are grade A sliced, dried naturally and uniform in thickness. Try for yourself and see what everyone is talking about and enjoy the rich, chewy, nutty and earth flavor profile that makes these mushrooms so darn good.
To use dried Porcini in cooking:
Using Porcini or any dried mushrooms in cooking is really quite easy. Simply rehydrate the mushrooms in warm water until just tender cook as you would normally with fresh mushrooms. If your recipe calls for chopped, or diced mushrooms be sure to rehydrate first and then gently blot dry. You can either dispose of the water used to hydrate the mushrooms or reserve for use as a vegetable stock or to thin out your sauces.
My experience is as great.
I had never used dried mushrooms before, and your instructions were precise! I made a porcini brandy brown sauce, akin to "Hunter Gravy" that went excellently with seared sirloin tips and roasted new potatoes. Kudos to your porcini and packaging!
I am always TOTALLY SATISFIED with any product (s) I order from Slo Food Group, my "GO TO" store for mushrooms, vanilla beans etc,.My last purchase of porcini miushrooms was not up to my expectations, slightly "crumbly". However this will not deter me from ordering again,
My husband is from Italy and we usually get dried porcini mushrooms from San Francisco (we’re in Santa Fe, NM) but they weren’t available at the time so we decided to order from you. We were delighted that the porcini’s exceeded our expectations! They are high quality yet reasonably priced, flavorful, rich tasting and we couldn’t be happier. We will definitely buy them from you from now on. Thank you!!
Wonderful mushrooms,very tasty-----i would order them again!
