How to dehydrating dried mushrooms

Step 1

Put the dried mushrooms in tepid water for at least 15 minutes, depending on how thick the dried mushroom is.

Step 2

Vigorous swishing after 5 minutes of soaking allows any sand or particles to loosen, fall, and settle to the bottom.

Step 3

When the mushrooms are soft and pliable, gently lift the mushrooms out of the water.

Step 4

Strain this water through a fine sieve. The clean stained mushroom water can be added to stock or used in a sauce.

Step 5

Your clean, rehydrated mushrooms are plumed and ready to cook.

After this process, chop and use the rehydrated mushrooms as you wish. Now they are ready for a quick saute in butter or olive oil alone or with some garlic, shallot, or onions.  After this they can join whatever dish you want, be it a mushroom sauce for steak, pasta sauce, into a quesadilla, onto browned chicken, chops or whatever your fancy takes you.
