Dried Black Trumpet Mushrooms
Dried Black Trumpets Mushrooms
This dark mysterious stranger of the mushroom world is one of the most delicious of all mushrooms. It’s subtle and seductive “now you see me, now you don’t” appearance belies its forceful almost blue-cheesy flavor. Its almost slippery texture after cooking is very sensual yet this is not the chewy quality that most people expect from mushrooms. Instead of the slices or chunks mushrooms are generally cut into, black trumpets can be pulled apart into elegant long black strips. If desired, these can in turn be cut crossways into small black squares resembling truffles, hence the pet name “poor man’s truffles”.
