Dried Grade B Porcini Mushrooms

Our Dried Porcini Mushrooms are the quintessential dried mushroom. Their rich, earthy flavor and heady aroma are immediately identifiable as mushroom.

  • Dried Porcinis have a powerfully earthy aroma matched by their full-bodied, umami-rich flavor

  • Dried Porcinis have a much more concentrated flavor than fresh

  • Rehydrated Dried Porcinis have a firm texture similar to fresh Porcinis

  • Grade B is an economical choice ideal for applications where mushrooms’ flavor is more important than their appearance, as when they will be chopped or processed

  • Sometimes called “cepes,” and (less frequently) “pennybun mushrooms”

    Suggested uses

    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.

    Basic prep

    To reconstitute, place Dried 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.

    Braised Pot Roast with Porcini Mushrooms

    This rich, Italian-style pot roast gets its deep, umami flavor from a combination of porcini mushrooms, tomatoes and red wine. Slow-braised and comforting, this upscale dish is delicious with mashed potatoes. Or, serve it with risotto to echo the Italian theme.
