Porcini mushrooms (Boletus Edulis) are intensely rich, earthy, and fragrant. They have a pungent flavor that is reminiscent of the woods. These porcini mushrooms are dried in the traditional Italian style to intensify and concentrate these flavors even further. Urbani porcini mushrooms are carefully foraged and processed resulting in a superior final product: the slices of mushroom are large, the drying is even, and the aroma is strong.
Uses: Soak porcini mushrooms in hot water for 15-20 minutes to soften them before adding them to your favorite dishes such as stir-frys or eggs. The flavorful soaking liquid can be used for recipes such as risotto. Adding dried porcini mushrooms to soups or braises will elevate them to another level.
Porcini mushrooms pair well with truffles.
