Dried Porcini Mushrooms

 
Dried Porcini Mushrooms

 

Porcini mushrooms have a chewy texture and a strong nutty-woodsy, sweet, and meaty taste. These sliced mushrooms are a rich brown color with hints of yellow. The dried Porcini mushroom's flavors are actually enhanced when the mushrooms are dried in much the same way as sun-dried tomatoes flavor's are.

Porcinis like most wild mushrooms can be substituted into any recipe. The authentic flavor of these mushrooms is especially popular in Italian cooking where Porcinis are added to risotto, pasta, sauces, soups, casseroles, and stuffing.

Porcini mushrooms are also known as Cep, Cepes and king Bolete mushrooms.

Porcini Mushroom Powder

Porcini powder is made by finely grinding pure dried Porcini mushrooms into an easy to use form. It is a convenient way for adding the incredible flavor and aroma of Porcinis to sauces, soups, stews, stuffing, omelets, risotto, breading, dough, and even fresh pasta without any visible pieces. Of course, some flavor and freshness is lost when the dried Porcini mushrooms are pre ground. See more.

Porcini powder can be used as a seasoning to add savory flavoring, or umami, to all kinds of foods without adding a distinct porcini flavor. Porcini mushrooms, like all mushrooms are rich in the naturally occurring flavor enhancing compounds glutamates and nucleotides. Porcini Mushrooms powder is especially effective in enhancing savory flavors when more than one kind of glutamate rich foods are combined. Try adding 1/4 teaspoon porcini powder per cup of liquid for soups and stews as a natural flavor enhancer that will not alter other flavors.

 

 Porcini Mushrooms Recipes & Cooking Hints



Reconstituting:
Dried Porcini mushrooms can be reconstituted by stepping them in boiling water/broth for about 20 minutes, draining and rinsing well. The flavorful soaking liquid can be strained for addition to sauces and soups. Dried Porcini mushrooms can also be added directly to a simmering liquid 10-15 minutes before serving.

Sautéed: sauté reconstituted Porcini mushrooms and possibly shallots in butter for approximately 6-8 minutes. Serve warm as serve as a complement to red meats and game.

Sauce: Follow the recipe above and deglaze the pan with red wine, reduce liquid, add heavy cream, Porcini powder, and simmer until desired thickness is reached. Serve over all kinds of game, meats and pasta.
 

Porcini Risotto: sauté shallots, or onions and garlic in a fat such as olive oil until soft. Add rice and continue sautéing until rice is translucent, lightly browning the rice will add a pleasant nutty flavor to the finished risotto. Add dried Porcini mushrooms, stock and/or wine slowly while stirring and allowing the liquid to be absorbed between additions. Continue until the rice is cooked.

 

About The Porcini Mushroom

The Porcini Mushroom, Bolete edulis, grows in North American, European and even Australian forests. They often grow under conifer and hardwood trees to a large size; its cap can reach almost a foot across. Porcini mushrooms are generally not cultivated, but gathered from the wild because the symbiotic relationship these mushrooms seem to form with tree roots has proved hard to reproduce under controlled conditions.

Common Porcinis have a thick, fleshy, brown cap that sits upon a long, fleshy stem. The underside of the cap does not have gills, but pores that release its spores.


Wild mushroom picking should be done only under the supervision of an expert who is absolutely certain they have an edible mushroom. Some mushrooms are deadly poisonous, and some poisonous mushrooms can easily be misidentified as Porcinis.
