Fried red pine mushroom

October 14th, 2013 § 0

The saffron milk cap or red pine mushroom (in Turkish melki) grows under pine trees during autumn after warm sunny days and a good rain.

They are abundant in pine plantations especially in lowland and shady areas.  In Turkey, this type of mushroom can be find in Balıkesir region as well as Western Blacksea like Bolu or Mengen.

It is known as milky saffron mushroom , as it exudes a milky orange to apricot fluid when cut. The damaged mushroom turns to green colour.

There are some poisonous lookalikes which can be mistaken with saffron milk cap easily.

Commonly grow under pine trees during late summer to autumn, after warm sunny days and good rain. Often known as milky saffron, as they exude a milky orange sap when cut. Vibrant saffron-coloured cap, gills and stem. Firm texture. Full, roasted nut flavour.
PreparationDiscard stems before use.
UsageYoung pine mushrooms are tender and suitable with fresh pasta and egg-based dishes. Older, larger specimens require long, slow cooking ? best in casseroles and stews.
