Another Use For Your Spice Grinder

Posted on 18 February 2009 by TheChefsWife

OK, so hopefully you all bought a coffee grinder to use for grinding up spices as you need them for recipes.  Here is another use for that spice grinder.  When you are making mushroom dishes such as mushroom risotto, stroganoff, or stews, try throwing a handful of dried porcini mushrooms into the spice grinder.  Then add the mushroom powder you are left with to the chicken or beef stock that your recipe calls for.  This creates an incredibly rich and delicious mushroom flavor to enhance your dish.

    That’s a great idea…we got a bag of dried shitake mushrooms a while back and while I love the flavor, we can;t seem to get them away from a pretty chewy texture. I’d like to try this idea there and see if we can’t get something less like a nutty squid… 🙂
