Place your mushrooms in a bowl large enough to accommodate all of them. (Remember, dried mushrooms will reconstitute to 4 - 6 times their dry weight.)
Add enough warm water, wine or stock to cover them completely.
Let them sit in the liquid for 15 - 20 minutes. Gradually, they will absorb the moisture and "plump out."
Drain the mushrooms in a colander; be sure to reserve the flavorful soaking liquid for use in stocks, soups or sauces.
