TVWBB Hall of Fame
Doug, that recipe sounds delicious and I'm going to be making that real soon. Love mushrooms and with the smoke awesome. Thanks for sharing this with us.
Hard to believe that it's been 15 years ago I posted this recipe. Not surprising is that TVWB is still going strong. I continue to be amazed (amused?) that the #1 Google result for "smoked mushroom dip" all these years later is this thread. And that, today, at least from this locale, the grocery whose smoked mushroom dip I reverse-engineered way-back-when is Google result #2.
It doesn't really bring anything to the final product but texture. It's only in the recipe because it was in the original dip I replicated. Unless you have some other use for pine nuts, which are expensive, just leave it out. I do.
