Marinated Baby Porcini Mushrooms
Step 1: Brine
Peel the onion and stud with the cloves.
Put together a bouquet garni with the thyme, fennel, rosemary and bay leaf.
Break apart the head of garlic, and crush, leaving unpeeled.
Enclose the black peppercorns and coriander in a muslin pouch.
Come the dry white wine, white vinegar, bouquet garni, spice pouch, some coarse sea salt, garlic cloves and the sugar in a pot. Bring to a boil, then simmer and cover for 3 minutes.
Step 2: Mushrooms
Remove any dirt from the bases of the porcini mushrooms and trim. Brush under running water and pat dry with paper towel.
Plunge the whole mushrooms into the boiling hot brine, and cook for 15 minutes, maintaining a light simmer. To check the doneness, prick the mushrooms with the tip of a sharp knife. When the tip pierces the mushrooms easily, remove with a slotted spoon, and place on a stainless steel draining rack. Remove the aromatics, and cool.
