sweet-tooth or hedgehog mushroom

Hydnum repandum

Description:

firm, fleshy mushrooms with tiny white teeth and a buff to light-brown cap; sweet tasting. The teeth are white in the younger specimens and turn browner as they age (the 4th photo, which most resembles hedgehog bristles).

Habitat:

Douglas fir, Sitka spruce and hemlock forest

Notes:

This is one of the tasty treats of our forest. These particular ones were growing quite late in the season and were some of the biggest we've ever seen--the big cap was 6" across! Made an excellent cream sauce, pizza topping and in lasagna.
