Hedgehog Mushrooms – Fresh

Fresh wild mushrooms

SEASON ENDED

Wild hedgehog mushrooms are yet another culinary treat. They are a large-to-medium sized mushroom with an orange hue and slightly curled cap. They are also known as the “sweet tooth” mushroom (due to the appearance of small “teeth” on the underside of the cap rather than gills). They are absolutely delicious and have a silky texture when cooked. They will quickly become a favorite–but they are available only seasonally, so enjoy them when you can!

Fresh hedgehog mushrooms are delicious on risotto or our Sardinian pasta (see recipe link below).
