Use these quick tips to re-hydrate mushrooms
- Dried mushrooms
- If you have a french press, place the dried mushrooms in the bottom and fill with luke warm water. Use the mesh of the press to keep the mushrooms submerged in water!
- Place in a bowl with water and leave for 30 mins to a couple of hours. If the mushrooms are floating, place something on top to keep them down.
If you use very hot water to re-hydrate the mushrooms, they become partially cooked. We've found it best to use cooler water and let it soak for a bit longer. Ensure the container you use to re-hydrate your mushrooms in is large enough. Mushrooms lose about 90% of their weight when dehydrated and will gain that back when re-hydrating!
