Dried wild mushrooms can be reconstituted by placing them in a bowl with warm water, wine or stock. Mushrooms should rehydrate in 15-20 minutes and then be strained in a colander to remove any excess liquid and debris. Once reconstituted, the wild mushrooms will yield about 6-8 times their dried weight. Mushrooms must be cooked before eating.
Unused dried mushrooms should be stored in air tight packaging once opened in order to reduce their exposure to unwanted moisture.
Dried mushrooms will last for months when stored in a dry area away from direct sunlight.
