Star porcini mushroom boullion cubes? Good?

erica | Dec 31, 200603:26 PM     12

I have a box of these that I brought home from Italy a few years ago and never used. I am making farro today with a recipe (Molto Mario) that calls for water. (This is an excellent, easy recipe, by the way, from foodtv).

I am thinking of using one of these cubes to add more flavor. My question is: How do they taste? I know lots of people rave about them but the ingredient list begins with salt and vegetable fat and way down the list is 1.1% porcini Are these that much better than ordinary bouillon cubes (which I never use)? What do their fans use them for?
