I think that this is a White Truffle. I found it in association with young Doug Fir trees at the coast Saturday Nov 5, at an exposed road cut. It smells delicious, tastes sweet leaves an aftertaste that is pleasant.
Not sure how the white truffle notion came about, but I hope it wasn’t acted upon with a meal.

The first couple dozen times I smelled truffles, I cant imagine saying the smell was delicious. They were so foreign to my olfactory, I didnt know what to make of them. I dont know how one decides they are delicious or not. They are so potent that days after eating them, you can smell them through perspiration.
