SD Gourmet Wild Porcini Salt is made with dried wild porcini mushrooms. 

Common names for the porcini mushroom (Boletus edulis) vary by region. The standard Italian name porcino means "piglet" in Italian, and echoes the term suilli, literally 'hog mushrooms', used by the Ancient Romans, and still surviving in Southern Italian words for this mushroom. The derivation has been ascribed to the resemblance of young fruit bodies to piglets, or to the fondness pigs have for eating them.

Prized as an ingredient in various foods, wild porcini mushroom is an edible mushroom held in high regard in many cuisines, and is commonly prepared and eaten in soups, pasta, or risotto. The mushroom is low in fat and digestible carbohydrates, and high in protein, vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre. Although it is sold commercially, it has not been successfully grown in cultivation. Available fresh in autumn in Central, Southern and Northern Europe.

Italian folklore holds that porcini sprout up at the time of the new moon.

Porcini mushroom is most often dried, packaged and distributed worldwide. A delicious aroma of mushrooms greets you when you open a container of Wild Porcini Salt. The flavor has been described as nutty and slightly meaty, with a smooth, creamy texture, and a distinctive aroma reminiscent of sourdough. 

Dried porcini mixed with sea salt has a concentrated flavor and mushroom aroma that is excellent in risotto, soups, sauces and salmon.
