Perhaps the best known, most anticipated, and most nostalgic of all North American wild mushrooms. The elusive and legendary morel is the particular darling of Midwesterners, though they grow throughout the country from Washington State to Florida. Nothing compares to their steak-like flavor -- there really is no substitute. Their springtime season is brief and attended with cult-like reverence, but thankfully this rich, smoky morel powder manages to preserve the mighty morel mushroom all year long.
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 omelet, use as a seasoning rub for meat, fish, and poultry. The 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.
