Black Trumpets are sometimes called “poor man’s truffles” for good reason. This earthy, cheesy, flavor-rich mushroom is packed with a flavor that you have to taste to truly understand. Nearly wine-like in complexity, it combines notes of chocolate, fruit, butter, and cheese. Bake it into a rustic loaf or pizza crust, add it to hearty winter stews, or dust it over warm, soft brie.
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.
