How to Make It
Step 1 Ideally, you should soak the dried mushrooms in
a quart of warm water overnight to rehydrate them. The
soaking liquid is the soup stock, so be careful not to throw
it away.
Step 2 When mushrooms are soft, remove from water,
squeezing most of the liquid back into the bowl. Trim
away hard woody parts of the stems. Coarsely chop
mushrooms, and set aside. Pour liquid through a
cheesecloth-lined sieve over a bowl—stop when a
tablespoon or so of liquid remains, and discard it along
with the grit. Combine strained liquid with water until you
have 10 cups.
Step 3 Heat the oil in a large soup pot over mediumhigh.
Add the fresh mushrooms, onion, celery, and garlic,
and cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms give up
their water, about 10 minutes. Add thyme, dill, white
pepper, and cayenne, and keep stirring. Sprinkle our
over
mushroom mixture, and stir constantly for a few minutes
until our
begins to stick to the pot. Add porcini
mushrooms, the 10 cups of mushroom liquid, and bay leaf.
Stir while scraping to deglaze bottom of pot. Cook 15
minutes, stirring as mixture thickens.
Step 4 Reduce heat to a simmer, stir in potatoes, and
cook until meltingly tender, another 45 minutes. Season
with vinegar, salt, and hot sauce to taste. Simmer a few
more minutes. Remove bay leaf. Serve family style in a
tureen; garnish with fresh dill.
