the hedgehog mushroom


Hydnum repandum—Often called the “hedgehog mushroom,” this most delectable of delicious delicacies is easily recognized by its pale orange-tan colors, its terrestrial habitat, and the spines or “teeth” on its underside. In fact, Hydnum repandum is one of the safest edible mushrooms, since it is so unmistakable. Sadly, I rarely find Hydnum repandum in quantities sufficient for the table–but when I do, life stops until I eat them. Aside from the sweetly nutty taste, the texture of the hedgehog mushroom is truly wonderful; “pleasantly crunchy” is how I would describe it.
