Hedgehogs Case

Hedgehogs are a great all around mushroom. They’re cousins of chanterelles, and to me are a little under appreciated. They seem to get overshadowed by the more widely available golden chanterelles, since they fruit at around the same time. They’re really great though, even easier than chanterelles to identify and a breeze to cook.

The biggest difference between these and golden chanterelles is that underneath the cap, these have teeth, from Latin “dentium” (think teeth) sometimes used to describe them.
