There are some things that should always be in one’s larder. This homemade porcini mushroom salt comes under that category. Totally easy peasy to make and you’ll be rewarded with a jar of umami-packed flavor for sprinkling over just about anything!


  • 3 tsp porcini powder
  • 8 tbsp sea salt flakes
  • 3/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  • 3/4 tsp ground garlic powder


  1. Using a spice grinder, grind your dried mushrooms into a fine powder. If you have mushroom powder instead of dried mushrooms, skip this step.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, add the ground mushrooms to the sea salt flakes, garlic powder, and freshly ground black pepper. Give it a quick mix to infuse all the flavors together.
  3. Use straight away or store your mushroom salt for another day! 


Don’t be tempted to use fresh mushrooms for this recipe. Dried mushrooms have a much more concentrated flavor than fresh, so you’ll get a totally different result. Here is everything you need to know If you haven’t tried drying your own mushrooms before. 

Mushroom salt has so many uses! Add to a finished pasta or risotto, impart a hint of umami to your eggs, or season a steak before grilling.

Package a jar of mushroom salt, pop on a tag, and give it as a homemade gift to a food lover in your life. Homemade salt blends are really easy to make and make a great present.
