Product: Porcini mushrooms are used extensively in Northern Italian cuisine, imparting a subtle nutty flavour. The mushrooms can be rehydrated by seeping in hot water from 15-20 minutes. They can now be added to your favourite risotto, pasta, soup or stew. The water that had rehydrated the mushrooms will also be impregnated with the flavour and can be used as a stock.
