The Penny Bun mushroom represents the wild mushroom par excellence. It was given the appropriate nickname 'Penny Bun' because of it's well-baked colour and round shape. Whole caps are excellent grilled!
A mushroom with a brown smooth cap the shape of a halved sphere, atop a thick, dirty white stem. The mushroom is growing on a sloping patch of ground amongst moss, twigs and other forest debris; trees can be faintly seen in the background.
Vegie dashi (buillon / broth) by dried porcini mushrooms (Karl Johan) tastes more like katsuo-dashi and it’s more complex and aromatic. Made the same way as konbu-shiitake-dashi. Depending on the desired intensity you can adjust the amount of porcini.
