I use this seasoning more than anything on my spice shelves other than salt and pepper. The luscious flavor of porcini mushrooms is concentrated in this powder of 100% pure porcini. The mushrooms have been thoroughly cleaned before drying, and then milled. This is important, since other mushrooms powders frequently contain grit from the uncleaned mushrooms they are made from. Use this for everything from making gravy, soup & stock, to dusting a rib eye, and infuse all it touches with the richness of porcini. Putting this powder on meat as a rub a couple hours before cooking is ideal.
