Pleurotus Eryngii (Cardoncello)

Cardoncello is one of the finest mushrooms among those belonging to the Italian tradition.
The consistency is firm and the mushroom is very fleshy, the smell is pleasant, sometimes aromatic, and the flavour is, on the other hand, sweet but at the same full.
Cardoncello also stands out for its nutritional characteristics. It is characterized by a protein intake. It contains many essential amino acids that are good for the body and support the function of many organs. The same goes for vitamins, which are quite abundant.
It is excellent baked in the oven, perhaps together with potatoes, lamb, and sausage. If cleaned well, it can even be eaten raw in salads.
