Dried Porcini flavor has been described as nutty and slightly meaty, with a smooth, creamy texture, and a distinctive aroma reminiscent of sourdough.
Dried wild mushrooms can be reconstituted by placing them in a bowl with warm water, wine or stock. Mushrooms should rehydrate in 15-20 minutes and then be strained in a colander to remove any excess liquid and debris. Once reconstituted, the wild mushrooms will yield about 6-8 times their dried weight. Mushrooms must be cooked before eating.
