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 dried porcini mushrooms are top quality. Very flavorful when rehydrated. I'm on my second bag. And the big bag is a great deal.
My only issue is I’d like to know where these mushrooms are from? What country were they harvested in?
The bag was abundant with mushroom fragrance. Lots of large pieces of sliced sections. Good for stocks and sauces. Lots of concentrated mushroom flavor. But as far as texture may not be great to use alone once re-hydrated. The package does say "Boletus edulis and it's group"; not sure if that extends to all types of bolete in general or edulis-like species, or does it even matter. So perhaps not getting 100% B. edulis.
They are great!
Jus open big up the bag, I could tell they were super fresh. I would most definitely highly recommend urbanization. Also, orders their fresh frozen porcini, amazing as well.
