Commercial Description

Aromas of mushrooms, fruits and toasted hazelnuts. Add a rich umami flavour to any dish.

If there is a universally popular wild mushroom, it may be Boletus Edulis. The French refer to them as cèpes, the Germans glorify them as steinpilz, and the Italians are wild about their porcini.

Boletes are different from other mushrooms in that they have pores rather than gills on the underside of the cap. Spores are released by the thousands from the inner walls of hundreds of tiny round tubes making up the lower cap surface. This spore-bearing area resembles and acts like a sponge.

The darkest cepes are intense and aromatic in smell but the whites are very fine in taste. As a rule, 3 ounces of dried cepes will equal 1 pound of rehydrated mushrooms. Much variation is found in chefs’ opinions as to how long to soak them. On average, they are soaked for about 15 minutes in warm water. The best is to soak them about 30 minutes in lukewarm water. The length of time depends upon the thickness of the slices.

– Traditional European mushrooms.

– Dried cepes have a deep, rich taste that dominates soups and sauces for polenta and pasta.

– Cut mushrooms into desired sizes after soaking.

– In general, the larger the pieces, the more flavor.

– Add the remaining, soaking liquid to your food preparation by carefully pouring off the concentrated essence from the top, discarding any residual matter such as sand or soil at the bottom of the vessel.
