Our Champignon Powder is made from 100% pure finely ground champignon mushrooms, and captures the mushroom’s mild, earthy flavor in a multi-purpose powder.Champignon Mushrooms (Agaricus bisporus), also called "White Button" mushrooms, are the mushrooms most commonly eaten by U.S. consumers. They've been cultivated since the early 1700s in Europe, although there is some evidence to suggest they are native to North American woodlands.
The typical Champignon Mushroom is harvested when it is about 1 to 2 inches tall and about 1 inch wide. It is interesting to note that when certain brown-toned varieties of Champignon Mushrooms are allowed to grow slightly larger (2 to 3 inches tall), they are sold as "crimini." When allowed to grow beyond that (sometimes 4-1/2 inches wide or even larger), they're called "portobello" mushrooms.
Champignon Mushrooms' mild flavor and firm, meaty texture have broad appeal and lend themselves to many different applications. They are frequently used raw in salads, added as a topping to pizza, tossed in a stir fry or cooked in sauces for everything from pastas to roast meats.
When dried Champignon Mushrooms are properly rehydrated, they look, cook and taste just like fresh, especially in applications where they are cooked.
Our Champignon Mushroom Powder and Kibbled Mushroom Blend make excellent shortcuts to a full-flavored mushroom ravioli filling. A simple sage-infused brown butter sauce is the perfect finishing touch.
