Product Information

PRODUCT INFO

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.
