Confit Of Exotic Mushrooms

  • Yield: About 1 pound

Ingredients

  • 5 cups good-quality olive oil
  • 2 pounds assorted wild and exotic mushrooms, such as shiitakes, oysters, chanterelles, cloud ears, and hedgehogs, wiped clean and coarsely chopped (about 10 cups)
  • Bouquet Garni
  • 2 heads garlic, split in half crosswise
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 200?F.
  • Pour the oil into a large roasting pan and add the mushrooms, spreading them out evenly and pressing them down gently. Add the bouquet garni and submerge in the oil.
  • Separate the split garlic head into cloves and submerge them in the oil-mushroom mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Cover the pan with a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil and slow-bake for 2 hours.
  • Drain the mushrooms, reserving the oil.
