Mushrooms: More Than Just A Tasty Ingredient
Did you know that mushrooms are very good for you? Low in calories and filled with nutrients, mushrooms are a great source of B vitamins and minerals. Copper, selenium, potassium, zinc and even manganese are all present in mushrooms. In addition, mushrooms contain a very powerful oxidant. Shiitake, maitake and oysters as well as eryngii (king oyster mushrooms) contain the greatest amounts of the anti-oxidant known as L-ergothioneine. This powerful antioxidant, has been discovered in mushrooms, thanks to a new analytical method capable of identifying this antioxidant in plant material. Mushrooms also contain more protein than most vegetables.
Dried Mushrooms: All About Flavor
Flavor is what counts and this is what you get from the dried mushrooms and their liquid essence. When soaked, dried mushrooms produce an essence with an intense flavor. If using the mushrooms in a sauce or soup, lightly rinse them to clean then soak them in a small amount of the water, stock or broth you plan to use in preparing the dish. The soaking liquid may be used in cooking to increase the mushroom flavor. This is especially true with porcini mushrooms. The liquid can be reduced or simply added directly to soups, stews, pasta sauces and other sauces for a flavor boost. Mushroom blends, like our Pacific Blend are ideal for creating complex, layered flavors.
