Mild flavor, good firm texture.

But I scrape the spines off before cooking them. The spines tend to fall off and coat everything in the pan, which IMO detracts from the desirability of the meal.

Very nice, Dave

I saw ‘hedgehogs’ at the Stokes S.F. on Sunday. Fall is coming… I don’t think I’ve ever eaten these, and if I did it was mixed in with other mushrooms. What do they taste like?
