Porcini B (Cepes) Mushrooms, Dried – a Vegan Pantry Ingredient from Vegan Venue
Porcini B (cepes) mushrooms, dried are very convenient to use in Italian sauces.
We only could find references to these mushrooms being wild and not domestically farmed. Also the porcini B cepes are much less expensive that the porcini, and their flavor is still very good. We usually buy them in one pound packages from our coop, but have seen them in health food stores and some supermarkets. Porcini mushrooms (Boletus Edulis) are a very popular mushroom throughout Europe and the United States. During late spring and early summer the porcini grows in abundance. Porcini mushrooms have a distinct flavor. The flavor can be almost addicting. Dried porcinis are a very economical mushroom as the flavor is very concentrated. Porcini mushrooms are delicious in soups, sauces, stuffing and stews. Dried Porcini can be substituted for any Mushroom in any recipe; typically a smaller amount of Dried Porcini can be used in recipes than other mushrooms because of the intense flavor.
