A small, high-quality variety of porcini, these mushrooms actually produce their best flavor when dried and distilled. The liquid used to rehydrate these Porcini whole mushrooms has the strongest mushroom essence; a dark, rich, woodsy flavor that makes a fantastic base when making your own soups, stocks, and sauces. The extra AA rehydrated mushrooms can be chopped and made into French mushroom paste or used in any dish calling for chopped mushrooms.We also carry powdered porcini mushrooms (Boletus edulis) and Porcini Seal Salt. Any of these porcini products are excellent for sauces, risotto, or soups. These dried whole mushrooms though are especially good when adding to a sauce to use on your steak.
