You know you've had a great day when you manage to come home with three Cauliflower mushrooms (Sparassis radicata). I think I only managed to find 2 all of last year and we found three in one day today.
If you have never tasted mushroom soup made with one of these then I suggest it's time you add the experience to your "bucket list". They really do have a unique flavour and smell. The hard part is cleaning the damn things. They are usually full of coniferous needles and spiders. But if you don't mind the extra protein then you don't have to be too fussy .... besides .... just how bad could spiders taste anyway?
