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).
Mushroom hunters look forward to the window of opportunity to collect these edible treasures. Another of the wild species that has not adapted well to cultivation. Nothing compares to nature! Our selections come from reputable harvesters and are shipped to you FRESH after being hand selected and packaged for you.
As with all mushrooms, store in refrigerator either in packaging they come in or on a clean dish covered with a dishtowl. Before use, brush or blow of any traces of its wild heritage. If you must, rinse very QUICKLY under COLD water. These mushrooms saute nicely and have a very silky texture.
