How to Rehydrate Dried Mushrooms - Reconstitute Dried Mushrooms
Dried mushrooms are often listed as an essential pantry item by many accomplished cooks. They may not be right there on top with olive oil and sacks of rice but they usually hold their own somewhere in the middle, especially if you cook Asian or European cuisines. Dried mushrooms can be pricy, but they pack a lot of flavor. Once the mushrooms are soaked, strained, and chopped, even just a small amount will add enormous flavor to a dish. Here's how to make the most of your dried mushrooms. One of the big challenges with dried mushrooms is grit. Dried mushrooms are notoriously gritty and it only takes the tiniest amount of it to ruin a whole dish. Some people have even given up on dried mushrooms due to the fact that they can't seem to get the grit out. Soaking as we explain here will remove the majority of it, and rinsing, too, will often take care of the rest.
Cheap and low-grade mushrooms tend to have more grit, and the amount of grit can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, depending on how they handle the mushrooms. Ask around, find a brand you like and stick with them. The best way to reconstitute dried mushrooms is to simply soak them in water. Many recipes call for hot or warm water but it isn't always necessary to use hot water. Room temperature water will also soften the mushrooms and many people believe it extracts less of the flavor from the mushrooms, leaving more mushroomy flavor right there in the mushroom where it belongs.
