British Columbia Wild Mushrooms - Dried

These wild mushrooms are picked with respect and care towards nature.  They are handled gently and delicately because most mushrooms are sensitive to rough handling and bruise easily.   Quality suffers when appropriate care isn't taken throughout the harvesting and processing stages.  This is one of the reasons why small, family operations can often have the best quality products.

A small amount of dried mushrooms can go a long way in your kitchen, and they can last for years when stored properly.  Store unused mushrooms in an air-tight container in a cool, dry, dark place — your cupboard, cabinet or pantry is usually fine. They can be crumbled and added directly to soups, sauces or stews.  For use in other recipes, or to saute by themselves (the best way to really experience the flavour!), rehydrate by soaking in very warm water (or stock, or wine) for 30 - 45 minutes, depending on size and variety.  Morels take a little less time, around 20 - 30 minutes.  Check the look and feel to see when they're ready.  Drain well.  Be sure to strain (fine sieve or cheesecloth) and save the soaking liquid — you've now created a rich, mushroom stock for use in your favourite recipes!

Don't forget, all these products are available for local delivery within Prince George city limits.  Delivery is just $10, or free with orders of $40 or more!  Just pick your faves and contact us for delivery and payment details.

British Columbia Wild Morel Mushrooms

Dried Jumbo Morel Mushrooms

Rare, popular and good-lookin', the Jumbo Morel is the rock star of the forest floor. A complex flavour — earthy, nutty, toasted, rich and deep — and a distinct meaty texture. Also, a phenomenal natural source of vitamin D.  Plus, rehydrates very well — up to 90% of its original size.  Definitely a show-off.

British Columbia Wild Mushroom PowderBits

Wild Mushroom Blend Powder

So, maybe our Wild Mushroom Bits aren't quite concentrated enough for you.  Well, why not try our select 6-mushroom blend in powdered form?  Frequently sold as health supplements, powdered mushrooms intensify both nutrients and flavour in a convenient, economical form that's incredibly versatile. Use it in all the suggested recipes for our Bits, plus anywhere you require a finer product, such as mixing with flour for pasta-making and baking.  Some caution is required, since this product comes dangerously close to achieving critical flavour mass.  Use too much, and boom!  A mushroom cloud of rich aroma and flavour will fill your kitchen, escape through your window, and attract neighbors and passersby.  Which is fine, if you've got enough to go around. If not, be prepared to discourage visitors, perhaps with a large dog or sharp stick.
