A fungus which grows in darkness without roots – hardly a description of the delicate and flavorful mushroom! Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics show that the mushroom was believed to make Pharaohs immortal. Throughout much of the world they are still valued for medicinal properties.
Mushrooms are generally harvested in the Fall, but the prized Morel is
a gourmet mushroom harvested in Spring. The delight of mushroom lovers, the Morel is hollow and perfect for stuffing and baking. Try our Truffle Oil as vinaigrette and drizzle over fresh blanched asparagus or salads for an instant touch of elegance. Mushroom powders have nutritional properties and Porcini powder is Italy's favorite - dredge veal cutlets in Porcini Powder before sautéing.
