Lactarius indigo

Recommended Posts

I tried a new mushroom that I found in the woods today -- Lactarius indigo. This is a very distinctive, funnel-shaped mycorrhizal mushroom that "bleeds blue" when cut.

Unfortunately, after a 6-minute saute', it comes out the other side looking more aqua than blue. Reminds me of an old George Carlin schtick ("There is no blue food"). The flavor isn't strong, but kinda nutty...far better than I expected from the culinary descriptions I've encountered in books.

Hopefully the next message you get from me won't be my obituary. :-)
