ITALIAN DRIED PORCINI MUSHROOMS
Porcini mushrooms have a chewy texture and a strong nutty-woodsy, sweet, and meaty taste. These sliced mushrooms are a rich brown color with hints of yellow. The dried Porcini mushrooms flavor is actually enhanced when the mushrooms are dried in much the same way as sun-dried tomatoes flavors are. Porcinis like most wild mushrooms can be substituted into any recipe. The authentic flavor of these mushrooms is especially popular in Italian cooking where Porcinis are added to risotto, pasta, sauces, soups, casseroles, and fillings for homemade ravioli.

PORCINI MUSHROOM POWDER
(FARINA DI PORCINI)
Italtouch porcini powder is made by finely grinding pure dried Porcini mushrooms into an easy to use form. It is a convenient way for adding the incredible flavor and aroma of Porcinis to sauces, soups, stews, stuffing, omelets, risotto, bread, dough, and even fresh pasta without any visible pieces. Of course, some flavor and freshness is lost when the dried Porcini mushrooms are pre ground.
Porcini powder can be used as a seasoning to add savory flavoring to all kinds of foods without adding a distinct porcini flavor. Porcini mushrooms, like all mushrooms are rich in the naturally occurring flavor enhancing compounds glutamates and nucleotides. Porcini Mushroom powder is especially effective in enhancing savory flavors when more than one kind of glutamate rich foods are combined. Try adding 1/4 teaspoon porcini powder per cup of liquid for soups and stews as a natural flavor enhancer that will not alter other flavors.
