Right now, I’m in love with mushrooms. Both their texture and earthly flavor add something interesting to any meal. One way to make this savory ingredient more accessible is to create a Mushroom Seasoning Salt. Dried mushrooms have a longer shelf life than fresh mushrooms, and their flavor is more intense. They are a great base for soups and sauces, and make the perfect seasoning when sautéing fresh vegetables or meats.
