Description

Porcini mushrooms are highly valued for their distinctive umami flavour and meaty texture. Their taste is similar to other mushrooms but with a deeper, nuttier flavour. They are ideal for enhancing a wide range of dishes such as Italian pasta, risotto, pâtés, pizza, casseroles, soups and sauces.

As the porcini relies on a complex relationship with its surroundings it cannot be cultivated and has to be foraged by hand in season, this makes these mushrooms even more sought after. Mushroom Network’s porcini are wild-foraged in the Western Cape.

Usage Instructions

Rehydration

  1. Submerge the desired amount of dried mushrooms in room temperature water.
  2. Soak for 20 to 30 minutes, then drain the excess water.
  3. Rinse rehydrated mushrooms briefly under running water to remove any unlikely but potential grit.

Tip: Instead of throwing away the leftover water, use it as a broth in soups, stews, sauces or pâtés.  Make sure to strain the broth before use.

Storage

In their dried form these mushrooms have a long shelf life and can be kept for a year or more in an airtight container without losing their flavour or nutritional benefits.

Tip: The leftover broth can be refrigerated for a few days or frozen for longer.
