Preparing to Soak 

Select the portion of porcini you desire for your recipe and soak them in hot spring water for 20 - 30 minutes. You could also soak them for several hours in room temperature water, which will unlock a more mushroom-y flavor. Cook your porcini 

Secret hint: You can use your Black Magic Wild Chaga Brew liquid for soaking your porcini's for a medicinal super punch of flavor and nourishing properties.  

Not only can you use your now rehydrated porcini mushrooms now for cooking, you also have yielded a rich earthy liquid broth that you can use to enhance the flavor of soups, rice, sauces, stews, and braises. Freeze for future use if need be.
