Dried Wild Porcini Mushroom have a powerfully earthy aroma matched by their full-bodied, umami-rich flavour. Reconstituted Porcinis are firmly textured and almost smooth when bitten into. They 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.
Rinse mushrooms under cold running water to remove any initial debris. Dried wild mushrooms can be reconstituted by placing them in a bowl with warm water, wine or stock. Mushrooms should rehydrate in 15-20 minutes and then be strained in a colander to remove any excess liquid and debris. Once reconstituted, the wild mushrooms will yield about 6-8 times their dried weight. Mushrooms must be cooked before eating.
