I live in the Adelaide Hills in Australia and there are about 15 large radiata pines on our property so we get literally hundreds of pine mushrooms (saffron milk caps) every winter. We have a very limited amount of porcini in the Adelaide Hills too and I went looking for them in winter without any luck. Mushrooms are great.
The sourdough starter is kicking along nicely but I need a free weekend to do some baking. My combo cooker arrives in a few weeks... Exciting.
That's great! Here's an L deliciosus find from earlier this year. Excuse the dirty hands, I wasn't actually foraging, but found this guy after a long day of rock climbing. I'm sure your specimens are probably larger, but I was still excited to find this little guy
I love their bright color! And also their flavor
Ooh. That's a nice one. Perfect size.
We get all sizes from tiny pins to the size of a side plate. They obviously start small and grow to the plate size.
My favorite recipe with these is a carbonara linguine. Get some of these, sautee with onions, fresh sage and garlic, add bacon, then cream and serve on the linguine with some grated parmesan or pecorino on top.
