Description 

 

The hedgehog mushroom is a wild forest mushroom found under deciduous and coniferous trees.  There are two closely related species of fresh hedgehog mushrooms Hydnum repandum and Hydnum umbilicatum. Neither has gills like most other mushrooms; instead, tiny soft, hairlike  teeth or spines grow on the underside of their caps, which resemble a bristly hedgehog, giving them their chaming name.

 

Fresh hedgehog mushrooms are rather mild in taste, but their delicate, nutty flavor and tender texture are quite wonderful.  These qualities make fresh hedgehog mushrooms an excellent substitute for other fresh mushrooms, especially chanterelles.  When other mushrooms are out of season, use the charming hedgehog in any dish calling for fresh mushrooms.

 

One of the most versatile of wild mushrooms, fresh hedgehog mushrooms go very well with both meat and fish dishes, sauces, soups and stews.  While hedgehogs are frequently mixed with other mushrooms, they are worth trying on their own for their excellent flavor.  If they don't grow in your area, you can always buy fresh hedgehog mushrooms online from Earthy Delights whenever they are in season!

Breast of Veal with Hedgehog Mushrooms
The name of this fascinating mushroom comes from the small, toothlike projections under the cap where, in other mushrooms, the gills are found. They can be found in groups under conifers or hardwoods, or, depending on the area of the country, around rhododendron bushes. They have been described by some as having a mild chanterelle flavor.

Baked Haddock with Hedgehog Mushrooms
Here's another wonderful main course for the mushroom extravaganza. Haddock is a light, flaky fish that goes well with a variety of sauces, but this combination of mushrooms, wine, and green onions is simple, light, and hard to beat. Served lakeside with candlelight, soft music, and fresh garden vegetables it makes a romantic gourmet dinner. It's also wonderful in the spring with tender fresh asparagus.
