Oliveri Dried Porcini Mushrooms are pantry powerhouses with a pronounced woody flavor that sets them in a class of their own. After harvest, these small, dark, mature porcini are dried to preserve their robust aroma and characteristic flavor.
Once rehydrated, these high-quality mushrooms become meaty and tender, perfect for adding to risotto, pasta, farro dishes, and more. Add finely chopped porcini to Principato di Lucedio Carnaroli risotto or use them in a ragù.
To rehydrate porcini:
Make sure you rinse the dried porcini mushrooms under running water to clean any remaining debris.
Submerge them in warm water for at least 15 minutes.
Reserve and strain the flavorful soaking liquid to add rich, mushroom earthiness to soups, stews, and sauces.
The drained mushrooms are ready to be used!
Cook them for no longer than 15 minutes to ensure they retain their meaty texture and strong aroma.
