There are many ways to reconstitute dried mushrooms, but here is the easiest. For a more comprehensive method, see the video above:

1) Put the desired amount of dried mushrooms in a non-reactive bowl.

2) Pour boiling water over the dried mushrooms to cover.

3) Let sit for at least 20 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender.

4) Strain the mushrooms and use in recipes that call for fresh mushrooms. Reserve the water as it serves as a flavorful base for making stock.

Note: Dried wild chanterelle mushrooms reconstitute woody and tough. Accordingly, we only recommend dried chanterelles to be used in dishes that are to be pureed.

  28. Dried mushrooms can be cooked directly without rehydrating,
    Put required amount of dried mushrooms in a pan. Pour hot water as required. Put oil,salt as required and cook until half cooked. Put your favourite vegetables, pepper (chilli). Add cheese (3 scoops of spoon). Cook till your vegetable is cooked. Note: if you need the curry with soup, add water while cooking.
