Staff Tips & Tricks

About This Spice
Be sure to discard any sediment from the soaking liquid, as this is a natural product. Try sautéing the rehydrated mushrooms in olive oil with minced garlic or shallots before adding some freshly cooked penne pasta into the pan for a rustic dinner. We also love using these morel mushrooms in recipes for risotto, soups, or simply sauteed in butter and placed upon a grilled steak.
1oz dried morels = over 1/2 lb of fresh
I have use The Spice House Morel Mushrooms in my Spaghetti Sauce for years, and they are an absolute must have. The Morel Mushrooms enhance the flavor of the sauce to another level.
Love the flat packs!
Yes, these are best fresh, but Spice House dried morels are the next best thing - especially mid-winter!
When in season, I could purchase fresh morels from a local farmers' market. Unfortunately I no longer seem to get the fresh product as the collector no longer does so. These dried morels from The Spice House work for me. They rehydrate well and are clean inside despite being whole mushrooms.
I've ordered several times.
I made a rice side dish and added the Morel Mushrooms. These were exactly what the side dish needed. Savory, texture and balance to make it unique. Thanks Spice House!
