Craterellus Cornucopioides (Trombetta da Morto)

“Trombette dei morti” are particularly sought-after mushrooms.
The appearance is not that great. The common name does not encourage consumption and yet it is a mushroom that should not be underestimated because, in many parts of Italy, it is known as the "truffle of the poor".
They have an aromatic taste similar to that of the Scorzone truffle, which goes well with other more delicate ingredients. They can be boiled or cooked in a pan with garlic and extra virgin olive oil to prepare excellent sauces.
In any case, these mushrooms give their best once dried and used in powder or pieces to season first courses.
