With a slightly spicy Chanterelle-like flavor, and a semi-sweet & mild fruity aroma, the Hedge Hog mushrooms is one of winter’s greatest treats. The season is from Jan – March & the quality is excellent. Similar to the Chanterelle, they pair well with fish and steak, chicken and game or mixed in a ragout served with fresh pasta, they are quite versatile. Sustainably foraged in Washington, Oregon & Northern California.
