Candy cap mushrooms from Marxfoods.com.

These candy cap mushrooms, foraged in the Pacific Northwest, have an intense maple aroma and a slight earthy flavor that lends itself surprisingly well to desserts. Steep the dried mushrooms in cream for panna cotta or ganache or grind them to sprinkle over ice cream. Prefer something savory? Use them in a creamy pan sauce for pork chops.
