Add flour to the fat. Feeling punked.

Only, if your are stuffing them. Other wise they are the flavoring, canned, fresh, powdered. Think texture for your ap.

I use them as well...different taste than fresh...but sometimes they do the trick! (Plus I like them!!!) What kind of flavors are you looking for them to absorb?

I was thinking that by adding fresh mushrooms, they could help soaking up some pork fat for when I make pork chops with cream of mushroom

Well shame on me. Now I am going to have to try them. I seriously have not seen them in years. Saw them in a jar at the store yesterday.

I keep a jar of them in the pantry. I drain and pat them dry and them saute in a little butter and olive oil before adding them to a dish. Gives them a whole different flavor than just 'out of the jar'. I also do that with frozen pearl onions. From freezer to simmering water for a minute of two, pat them dry and then saute.

Of course they do. Do people still use canned mushrooms? I'm not trying to be rude, but are we being punked?
