Dried Mousseron Mushrooms
Mousseron Mushrooms, also called "Scotch Bonnet" or "fairy ring" mushrooms due to their ring-shaped growth pattern, have small, golden-brown caps and very slender stems. Their pungent aroma and robust flavor are similar to porcini mushrooms.
Rinse and agitate mushrooms with your fingers under cold running water to remove any possible debris. To rehydrate prior to use, place desired amount into a bowl covered with boiling water and let soak 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse well. Or, add directly to any recipe that will cook for at least 25 minutes.
Storage & handling
Store in a dry, cool place.
Robust, earthy Mousseron Mushrooms taste a bit like umami rich Porcini Mushrooms. Mousseron Mushrooms hold their shape well and maintain a little chew.
