Urbani's porcini mushrooms are still dried in the old traditional italian way. Packed in an elegant bag you can first appreciate the size and quality of these mushrooms and later appreciate their unique flavor in cooking.
The mushrooms should be rinsed and cleaned of any dirt before use. To bring out the aroma of the porcini mushrooms, you need only to soak them in a mixture of milk and warm water.
Excellent for risotto or pan-fried, they are great combined with prestigious white Alba truffle.
Ingredients: Dried Porcini mushrooms (Boletus edulis).
These porcini mushrooms were a great deal. Nowhere but Italy could you get a lb of dried porcini mushrooms for this price. In the store they would be far more expensive and of lesser quality. There were plenty of large pieces (as opposed to crumbs), and the quality was excellent. I tried Urbani once before (a smaller package to experiment), and so when for the larger quantity with confidence.
These are absolutely wonderful in any meal you prepare that needs that special something. I will definitely be buying these again to keep my pantry well stocked!
I have not opened this bag yet I have some left over from a previous order. They are very good.
My daughter and I made a delicious risotto and we prepared the porcini mushrooms in warm water for 15 min then chopped them up and added the mushroom broth to the chicken stock. It was delicious and we topped it off with the Urbani white truffle salt. I cant want to make more recipes this winter with your ingredients. Since covid we really enjoy cooking together. Next recipe will be with some homemade fettuccini and white truffle salt.
It is the first time I tried porcini, it was really good, Maybe because it is dry, the taste is salty.
