Cooking with Dried Morel Mushrooms

Wine Forest Dried Morel Mushrooms

Wine Forest Dried Morels should be in every kitchen pantry. They're another of those natural, nutritious and simple ingredients that are labeled as lucurious because they're so delectable. Morels re-hydrate well, maintaining their shape and structure so they can be sliced, chopped or left whole and stuffed. Their flavor will be intense and just as deliciously earthy as they would be were they fresh.

Morels are distinctly beautiful mushrooms. If you'll be incorporating them into sauces, stuffings and side dishes, leave some of them whole and enjoy the visual wonder of your meal.

Soaking Time: 15 - 20 minutes
