There's no great mystery to using dried mushrooms. In fact, reconstituting dried mushrooms is a very simple process.


Just follow these easy steps:

  1. Place your mushrooms in a bowl

      large enough to accommodate all of them.

      Remember, dried mushrooms will reconstitute

      to 4 - 6 times their dry weight.




  2. Add enough warm water, wine or stock to cover them completely.





  3. Let them sit in the liquid for 15 - 20 minutes.

      Gradually, they will absorb the moisture and

      "plump out."


  4. Drain the mushrooms in a colander; be sure

      to reserve the flavorful soaking liquid for use in

      stocks, soups or sauces.
