Boletes (Boletus Luteus) are Mushrooms that have tubes, a spongy layer containing tiny pores instead of gills. This Mushroom is the "King" of the edible Mushrooms. This Mushroom typically grows in the summer or fall and is found growing under conifers and hardwoods in temperate climates. The Mushrooms are used fresh or dried for consistent availability. The European Boletes are sliced then dried for use. Kibbled Boletes are cut into 1/4" pieces to save time in the kitchen. These Mushroom pieces are dark brown in color and have a rich, deep, earthy flavor.
Kibbled Boletes are great in pasta sauces, soups and any recipe calling for Wild Mushrooms. Boletes are wonderful in Wild Rice Pilaf or add them to your next stuffing or casserole dish. These are wild mushrooms, they may have stones embedded in their flesh. To help dislodge the stones, it is strongly recommended to reconstitute and agitate the mushrooms prior to use. Note: some stones may not be dislodged from the flesh after reconstitution.
