I made the proposal to perhaps point you in the direction of R. brevipes. I am not familiar with the variations for this species name. Looks like this specimen had been buried in the substrate… which would point toward brevipes (group).

If brevipes, then according to ME, the acridity would more match var. acrior.

Also, ME speaks of it looking like a lactarius (L. deceptivus). I was thinking the uncooked version looked like a lactarius, but the boiled one really looked like one (those w/more spaced gills). I see now that L. deceptivus & this look very similar. Of course, we’re not sure this is Russula brevipes, yet.
