Dried Wild Mushrooms: Ideas wanted

Caralien | Jan 28, 2009 05:44 AM

We picked up an 8oz bag of dried wild mushrooms ($15; porcini, black trumpet, chanterelle) from Griggstown Farm Market this past weekend. It's at least a quart by volume dried. I will have to transfer everything to a different container, however, as the bag crimped and filled to its breaking point.

What would you do with them? Do they grow by 50 or 100%?

My plan was to take a small handful at a time, soak in warm water or broth for awhile, filter out dirt but reserve the liquid. Then add to?

I have a lot of green beans, so a dried mushroom and garlic green bean stir fry will be served with dinner tonight.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
