Dried Porcini Mushrooms
I used a handful Porcini's in my meat and veggie soup this weekend. I also used the water (strained) I soaked them as part of the broth. WOW, it had so much depth in flavor. Really added a richness to the soup. Very pleased!Julie, El Cajon, CA

If you're looking for a similar aroma and flavor of porcini mushrooms , buy these as the flavor can't be beaten for the price. In the USA, most stores do not carry porcini mushrooms and if they do their origin is from China so I'm not sure exactly which variety I am getting. I have not had any issues with the quality. They're fairly clean and full of a distinct aroma. If using the mushroom water I did notice that these mushrooms create a darker and Cloudier are broth that will leave speckles on the pasta. I it is not great as I have strained through a filter and left overnight but there is a characteristic with this compared to the once I've purchased in the supermarket. When making my sauce, side by side with the supermarket ones, the gravy from the supermarket was more of a sand color and more translucent while as the Chilean variety as more of a coffee with cream color and some more noticeable speckles that will stick to the pasta. I would not say this is a bad thing but I had a chef say that it looked muddier. At this price I am fine with that and think that it adds a little more interest the blank canvas of the light pasta. I'm a little disappointing it no longer comes in a plastic container which I used to put in the freezer. The bag is fine I guess. Maybe it's better but I just cannot expect it to come in bag.Mark, Hamburg, NJ
