    Suggested uses

  • Rehydrated Bolete Mushrooms are frequently chopped before they (and their delicious soaking liquid) are used in recipes.

  • Can be used in many applications, (especially those cooked with liquid, such as soups, risottos, pastas, etc.) without soaking first, but only if they are thoroughly rinsed

  • Boletes are a flavorful addition to risotto, pasta dishes, soups and stews

  • Basic prep

    Rinse mushrooms under cold running water to remove any possible debris. To rehydrate prior to use, place desired amount into a bowl and cover with boiling water. Let soak for 6 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then drain and rinse. Or, rinse and add directly to any recipe that will cook at least 15 minutes.

    Ingredients

    Bolete mushrooms.

    The Bolete Mushroom (Boletus edulis) is a highly regarded variety of wild mushroom closely related to the better-known Italian porcini mushrooms. Boletes grow in a symbiotic relationship with pine trees, and can therefore be found all over the world in any environment hospitable to pine trees. These boletes are cultivated for us in Chile.

    Bolete Mushrooms are among the most highly aromatic and flavorful of all commercially cultivated mushrooms. Closely related to the prized Italian porcini, the bolete's potent, earthy flavor and meaty texture closely resembles that of its more expensive cousin, and can be substituted in recipes that call for porcinis with good results.

    When fresh, Bolete Mushrooms can be differentiated from porcinis by examining the underside of the cap. Boletes have a fine, sponge-like network of tubes, whereas porcinis have gills.

    Our First Quality Chilean Bolete Mushrooms are specially selected and represent the epitome of the great earthy flavor boletes are known for.
