Lady Magnon managed to find these whilst out walking with Billy yesterday. She said they were half-hidden beneath moss.
They are Hedgehog Mushrooms; known here in France as Dents de Rat, Pied de Mouton, or Langue de Chat/Vache, and here in Périgord as Barbissou.
They are very distinctive with the underside having tiny teeth-like 'stalactites' instead of gills or pores.
Fried with butter garlic and parsley, they go with almost anything. If cooked with Chicken they take on its flavour giving the impression of having twice the amount of Chicken. They're a good 'all-purpose' mushroom.
They are one of Lady M's favourites... I still haven't found any myself this year, and, of course, she keeps reminding me of the fact!
We ate the above last night with some Pork chops and baked potatoes; delicious.
