One of the less well-known varieties of wild mushrooms, hedgehog
mushrooms shouldn’t be overlooked. Hedgehogs are smallish brown and
white mushrooms that get their name from having small tooth-like
projections rather than gills underneath their caps. They have a firm,
dense texture and a delightfully rich, buttery flavor (sometimes with a
slight peppery note) that some describe as chanterelle-esque.
In fact, hedgehogs share several microscopic characteristics with golden chanterelles, and mycologists have speculated that the two varieties may be related.
Store wild mushrooms in your refrigerator wrapped in a paper bag. For long term storage & preservation ideas, read How to Freeze, Can & Dehydrate Fresh Mushrooms
Shelf Life: Up to ten days fresh. A year or longer dried. Several months frozen.
The buttery flavor of hedgehog mushrooms is welcome in almost any sautéed dish. They also work well in casseroles, soups, and stews.
Before cooking, clean them gently with a damp paper towel to remove dirt. Do not soak them.
