Hydnum repandum L.: Fr.

Cooking hedgehogs


Common Name: Hedgehog

Synonym: Dentinum repandum (L. : Fr.) S. F. Gray

Pileus; Cap 2-12 cm broad, convex, becoming nearly plane, disc sometimes depressed; margin inrolled at first, lobed to undulate; surface dry, smooth to slightly scaly, cream to buff-orange, bruising to orange-brown; flesh thick, pale-buff, brittle, bruising buff-orange; odor and taste mild.

Hymenophore: Teeth 0.4-0.6 cm long, brittle, cream-colored, bruising orange-brown, sometimes decurrent.

Stipe: Stipe 2-7 cm tall, 1-2.5 cm thick, equal to enlarged at the base; attachment central to eccentric; surface dry, smooth, cream to buff-yellow, bruising orange-brown; veil absent.

Spores: Spores 6.5-8.5 x 6-8 µm, nearly round, smooth. Spore print white.

Habitat: Scattered to gregarious under conifers, occasionally with hardwoods; in our area common under Bishop Pine (Pinus muricata) and Douglas Fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii). Fruiting from mid-winter to early spring.

Edibility: Edible and excellent, although they tend to be bitter unless well cooked.

Comments: Its pale-buff to buff-orange fruiting body resembles Cantharellus cibarius, but the latter is yellower in color, has ridges, not spines on the lower cap surface and generally grows with hardwoods like Quercus agrifolia, not conifers. Hydnum umbilicatum is a closely related species, smaller in size, the cap having a small, central pit.

I found the info HERE.

Hope you like!

Hi Felipe,
Good to see you posting! And, as always your post is quite excellent! The note with the links is great too... I'll make sure my wife sees that recipe. The presentation is superb! You are making my mouth water...;-)
Very nice indeed!

Great panorama. These are very tasty mushrooms (I love your recipe presentation).
We have plenty of them here and in good years (like was in 2004), one can pick many. I collected in 2004 about 20 kg in 2 days! We had a lovely 16 servings dinner with some friends, the rest I conserved for the winter.
I'll not put the recipe here for the space reasons but if you want it, just let me know.

Regards, Petru

Hola Felipe!

After typical Polish Christmas I'm little tired of eating fungi ;-) This one is weird to me ;-) I fully agree with its name. Autumn mood, excellent details and POV. This time even more - three big pictures in one. Superb work my friend!

Nicely presented Felipe,
Good detail and colours. Great POV and sharpness.
Nicely composed and good exposure.
Thanks for posting. Enjoy the rest of the week.

Hola extramundis, que tal el nuevo año?
Fotograficamente hablando ya veo que excelente. Me encanta este trabajo, la calidad de las tres imagenes es excelente, al igual que la luz y el color.
Me encanta la receta, nunca habia visto estos hongos, tienen una pinta..., siento curiosidad por saber si la textura es dura y crujiente como parece, un trabajo fenomenal.
Por aqui lo maximo que he probado culinariamente hablando son las macrolepiotas, cantharellus, incluso algun coprinus (buenisimos), pero ya he visto que por europa adelante no pierden el tiempo :)
Bueno, a ver si me animo yo tb a publicar ahora que ya han pasado los apuros de las fiestas.
Un saludo de circe.

This one really shines in the LP version Felipe..Technically perfect. Very well done my friend!!

Felipe, mais uma belíssima coleção.

A versão grande é realmente espetacular.

Gosto muito das cores, da nitidez e das composições.

Parabéns por mais este belo trabaho.
