Author Notes

This is the poor man's version of truffle salt. Just as delicious for a fraction of the price. —MyFareFoodie

  • Makes about 1 cup
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup Dried shiitake mushrooms, ground
  • 3/4 cup Coarse sea salt
  • Drop Black truffle oil (if desired)
In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Grind dried mushrooms in a food processor, spice/coffee grinder, or in a mortar and pestle until the mushrooms resemble the size of sea salt granules.
  2. Mix in salt. If desired, add a few drops of truffle oil and mix.
  3. Keep in an air tight container in a cool dry place. The longer that the salt sits, the more the mushrooms will infuse it.
  4. Notes: Any other dried mushrooms can be used in this recipe. Shiitakes provide a subtle taste, whereas morels or actual truffles offer more pungency. I added a bit of truffle oil to my salt to boost the flavor.
