Many mushrooms come in dried forms, and some exotic mushrooms only come in dried forms in stores.
When you see dried mushrooms in their packages, you might be thinking, “Hmmm…That sounds cool, but how can I use them?”
However, you must rinse them under cool water to be sure to get rid of any dirt that’s still on them from being picked.
Then, you’ll want to submerge them in very warm or hot water for about 30 minutes, ideally.
You can use these soaked mushrooms for wonderful, earthy flavor in your favorite dishes.
* WAIT: Don’t get rid of the soaking liquid because they’re phenomenal for flavoring dishes…
Fresh mushrooms are always wonderful to use and very flavorful, but dried mushrooms are a marvelous, earthy and intensified mushroom flavor as an addition to your dishes.
* Tip: 14 g or 0.5 oz of dried mushrooms substitute for 70 g or 2.5 oz of fresh mushrooms.
