Dried A A Porcini Mushrooms
Our Dried Porcini Mushrooms are the quintessential dried mushroom.
Dried porcini mushrooms are often reconstituted by soaking in warm or even boiling water until softened. Reconstituted porcini mushrooms are frequently chopped before they (and their delicious soaking liquid) are used in recipes. Porcinis are a classic addition to risotto, pasta dishes, soups and stews.
To reconstitute, place porcini mushrooms in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Soak for 6 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally. Rinse well. Note: if using soaking liquid in recipe, discard material that may settle in bottom of bowl.
Storage & handling
Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
This classic, authentic porcini risotto is made spectacularly elegant with the addition of our White Truffle Oil. Green peas add a mildly sweet note, while Romano cheese adds saltiness. With a little planning, this rich dish can come together in just 45 minutes.
