Hedgehog Fungus and Squash RisottoHedgehog Fungus

Hedghog Fungus (Hydnum repandum ) grows deciduous or coniferous woods. Season late summer to late autumn. recognised the by having spines growing down rather than gills, colour varies from white to salmon pink

Incredibly tasty and often found in large amounds , plese be careful to cut this at the stem so as not to damaage the the underlying mycelium , so it will grow back next year . Return to the same spot and you can harvest again .
