It's MATSUTAKE season in Portland, Oregon. Here are some pictures taken about a week ago:

The fungus likes to grow under pine straw near pine trees.

I had to throw out some of the matured mushrooms since maggots got a hold of it.

[Close Up] The black stuff that is on the mushrooms is as sticky as the sap of a pine tree.

From stir-fry to soup, Matsutake is one of the best tasting mushrooms that I have ever eaten. IT IS VERY DELICIOUS. YUM.

Nice collection.

There are 3 species of mushroom that are sometimes given the name matsutake. Yours are Tricholoma magnivelare (=Armillaria ponderosa). The other species that occurs in the US is Tricholoma caligatum. The original matsutake does not occur in the US - it's name is Tricholoma matsutake.

They all have the same basic matsutake taste and odor (although T. caligatum sometimes smells and tastes different - nasty).

The only fault I have with matsutake is that they have a fairly chewy texture. If not prepared correctly they can be unpleasantly chewy. But, as David Arora says, I'll be willing to take any specimens off the hands of somebody who doesn't know how to prepare them (in the interests of showing how, of course).

Oddly enough, the main chemical component which causes the odor is the same one that gives cinnamon its odor.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
