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 their dried form.
Far West Fungi creates this line of dried mushrooms by air-drying a select portion of its fresh organic and wild foraged mushrooms. All drying is done in-house at our own commercial kitchen, where great care is taken to preserve the natural essence of the mushroom. The result is a powerful, concentrated mushroom product, free from sodium, preservatives, or any other additive. It’s simple and pure: mushroom essence and nothing else.
Dried mushrooms can be reconstituted in any kind of warm liquid (wine, broth, cream, ect.) for 15 - 20 minutes, and then used in any application in which fresh mushrooms are called for. Try them as a base for soups and sauces, combine with eggs in a scramble or omelette, cook into a risotto, or toss with pasta.
