This is an incredibly rich and buttery Mushroom. This Mushroom can be found growing in large groups in damp deciduous woods, especially under oak or beech, during summer and fall. |
Black Trumpets work well as a flavoring ingredient in soups and casseroles. Black Trumpets are great in vegetarian cooking because they add a richness and depth that is often the role of meat in a recipe. These Mushrooms are delicious sautéed and added to rice dishes, particularly wild rice.
