Hedghog Mushroom

Venturing deeper into the forest, you might come across the hedgehog mushroom, Hydnum repandum.

Hedgehog Mushroom (Hydnum repandum)

Characterized by its distinctive spiky underside, this mushroom boasts a sweet, nutty flavor that pairs beautifully with creamy sauces or simply sautéed with garlic and herbs. Enoki mushrooms, Flammulina velutipes, offer a completely different culinary experience with their long, slender stems and mild, slightly crunchy texture. Often used in Asian cuisine, enoki mushrooms add a unique twist to soups, salads, and stir-fries.
