Domestic Porcini Powder
Porcini is one of the grand powerhouses of the dried mushroom world. If all wild mushrooms were cast in a play, Porcini would be the star. Its flavor is richly nutty, sweet, woodsy, and utterly unlike anything else. It tastes like the rainy woods in late fall. These porcini came from the untouched Redwood forests of the Northern California coast, and all the flavors of the wild forest still live on in the powder.
Far West Fungi creates this line of mushroom powders by air-drying fresh mushrooms in our own commercial kitchen, and then grinding them into a fine powder. The result is a powerful mushroom seasoning, free from sodium, preservatives, or any other additive. It’s simple and pure: mushroom essence and nothing else.
Use mushroom powder as a base for soups and sauces, whisk with eggs in a scramble or omelette, use as a seasoning rub for meat, fish, and poultry. Mushroom powder can be mixed with flour when baking, or dusted over roasted vegetables. It is a healthy way to add umami and depth of flavor to any dish.
