Description 

 

Lobster mushrooms (Hypomyces lactifluorum) are found in woods, where its favorite host, the short-stemmed russula grows; widespread, especially common under conifers in the Pacific Northwest.

 

Lobster mushrooms are said to have a seafood-like flavor, but probably really get their name from their bright orange-red exterior and creamy white interior.

Please take note!  While lobster mushrooms are not as attractive as other mushrooms, their rough, mottled exterior and pungent smell belie their wonderful flavor. Lobster mushrooms frequently are covered with white spores, even after they've been picked, but don't worry, it's not mold - they are supposed to look like that! Their aroma can be quite strong, but after cooking, the true, rich flavor of lobster mushrooms emerges. They do best sauteed. and retain their fimness. They make an excellent addition to soups, stews and terrines.

 

 

Recipes

Fava and Wild Mushroom Crostini
Fava beans and wild mushrooms are the perfect combination of field and forest, both delicately sweet and robustly earthy at the same time. This is some of the best that the spring season has to offer, flavors so good and so satisfying that it’s worth a little extra effort.

These elegant crostini are perfect for a casual dinner party. They’re actually very easy to prepare and to make things even simpler, we’ve broken the recipe down into three parts: the favas, the mushrooms and the bread. Each component can be easily prepared in advance and quickly assembled just before serving.

Rustic Wild Mushroom Tart
Fresh chanterelles are used in this recipe, but you can use any combination of fresh wild mushrooms. If you absolutely cannot find or buy wild mushrooms, by all means, use good quality cultivated mushrooms like shiitake, oyster or cremini mushrooms. Just keep in mind that cultivated mushrooms will not have the intense flavor and earthy aroma that only wild mushrooms possess.
