Morel mushrooms are prized the world over for their earthy, meaty flavor and texture and its honey combed pockets make for great sauce holders! You can pick no better mushroom to go with a great cut of meat, but its versatility makes it fantastic any recipe from soups and pasta to poultry and fish. Simply soak in broth, or water, until pliable and rehydrated (about 30-45 min) and then use as you would fresh mushrooms. The price shown is for 1 oz., which when rehydrated becomes about 7 ounces, plenty for a meal for two!
Wild Foraged Morel Mushrooms-Dried
Dried mushrooms rehydrate at approximately 7:1. If you purchase 1 oz dried, it would be the equivalent of about 1/2lb fresh. Please note that rehydrated mushrooms are best used in dishes that do not rely upon its texture to the same degree a fresh mushroom may in a dish. In other words, they cannot be "browned" very easily as you might sauté fresh mushrooms since they have been saturated by rehydrating.
Dried mushrooms may also be ground (BEFORE rehydrating) in a grinder and used as a "spice" to flavor any dish!
