Authentic Italian Extra Grade AA
Dried Porcini Mushrooms


In Italy Dried Porcini Mushrooms are divided in three main categories: Extra AA, Special, and Commercial. The classification is based on size of the mushroom, color lightness of the mushroom, the potency of the aroma, and the drying method. Extra AA Dried Porcini Mushrooms are the highest grade. They are fairly large, light-colored, air-dried, with strong aroma, generally harvested in the vicinity of chestnut trees. Perla is a respected Ligurian Company specializing in mushrooms.

Cooking Instructions

To prepare dried porcini steep them in boiling water to cover for 20 minutes or until they've expanded. Drain them, reserving the liquid. They're now ready for use in the recipe. The reserved liquid can be added to the preparation to bolster the mushroom aroma. Always filter the reserved liquid to avoid possible sand residues.
