Wild Foraged Porcini 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!
