Polish Dried Mushrooms

Two freshly-dried and packaged strings of delicious Polish Podgrzybek mushrooms.

Over the last few weeks the whole family have been busy wandering the forests around our home in beautiful Lubuskie, in the west of Poland. We have been searching for and picking wild mushrooms for consumption by us on special occasions such as Christmas Eve and Easter and indeed throughout the year in dishes like Bigos and Mushroom Soup.

Here are a couple photographs of the two youngest members of our family with some of our freshly dried Borowik and Podgrzybek mushrooms.

Dried Borowik and Podgrzybek mushrooms, packaged and ready for mailing out to anywhere in the world!

This year we have been fortunate in finding and drying many more of these delicious mushrooms than we can possibly eat, so, do please get in contact if you would like to buy some. The Borowik mushrooms have been sliced and dried using a traditional drying method. While the Podgrzybek mushroom caps have been dried on strings in our kitchen.

We store our own dried mushrooms in large airtight ‘Kilner’ style jars and they will safely keep for more than a year in this way. To re-hydrate dried mushrooms simply soak them in boiling water for about 30 minutes and add to whatever dish you are cooking.

There really is nothing quite like the taste of wild mushrooms from Poland and these are truly a Polish product. We can post them from here in Poland to anywhere in the world. Payment can be made via the secure online Paypal system and mushrooms packaged and mailed by tracked airmail in any quantity. Stocks are limited though. We have only selling what we can’t possibly eat ourselves over the next one year. Get in touch and buy some today!

Dried Mushrooms from Poland

The first of this year’s pick of wild mushrooms have now dried and are about to be put in store. Dried mushrooms, kept in a sealed container, will happily keep for up to a year, so will be used over the coming winter and beyond.

Here are a couple pictures of some of our dried Porcini (borowiki) and Bay Bolete (podgrzybek) mushrooms. All have been picked over the last week or two by our family in the forests of the province of Lubuskie in the far west of Poland.

Dried mushrooms are re-hydrated by soaking in boiling water for about 30 minutes and used in Polish dishes such as Bigos (Hunter’s Stew) and Polish Wild Mushroom Soup.

We’ve just returned from a successful two hour expedition into the forests around our house with two kilograms of splendid Borowik (Porcini) and Podgrzybek (Bay Bolete / Xerocomus) mushrooms. Here’s an example of just one of these beautiful and tasty Polish forest mushrooms. Most of the mushrooms we found today will be sliced and dried for use throughout the year.
