Our Porcini Mushrooms contain all the aroma of the Subalpine forests. White meat with white pores and tubules and a brown-hazel colored hat make Boletus edulis easily recognizable. This fungus lives in symbiosis with many plant species and other forest essences from which they get their scented flavor. There are various species of Boletus; Edulis is typical of mountainous areas, but is also found in other environments. The law prohibits the collection of mushrooms too small to avoid ruining the regrowth.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE: Dip the frozen mushrooms into a cold water pot. Bring to a boil and allow to simmer for 3 minutes. Drain and rinse. Prepare a base of oil and garlic, or a sauce, cook the mushrooms for 15 minutes, adding salt and parsley as desired.
