Porcini mushrooms are among the most highly aromatic and flavorful of all mushrooms available commercially. They have a rich, nutty aroma reminiscent of the wooded hillsides on which they grow and a deep, meaty flavor. Porcinis grow in a symbiotic relationship with trees and are often found poking up out of the discarded leaves beneath their branches. They are closely related to bolete mushrooms, and when fresh the two varieties can best be differentiated by the gills hanging from the bottom of porcinis' caps, while boletes have a spongy network of tubes.
The gentle drying process intensifies both the aroma and flavor of dried porcini mushrooms with the added benefit of preserving them for future uses. Dried porcini mushrooms can be used in nearly all preparations calling for fresh porcinis.
Porcini Mushrooms are graded according to their size, color, aroma and other factors. We use only 100% high-quality, dried, ground organic porcinis for our porcini powder, with no added fillers or preservatives.
Simple yet impressive, this big, bold steak gets an extra boost of flavor from an earthy dry rub made with our Porcini Mushroom Powder, garlic and rosemary. The rub infuses the meat with flavor and also draws out some of its internal moisture, leaving the finished product firmer and more intensely flavored.
