Best Wild Mushroom
Porcini, King Bolete, Cep, Boletus edulis
, or whatever you want to call them, are to many in the Northern Hemisphere, the best edible wild mushroom.
They are plentiful in Utah's mountains and can be found around moist spruce/pine timber. Their cap looks like a hamburger bun. The mushroom has pores, not gills. Some reach 16" in diameter, but the best size to eat are the 2" to 3" diameter buttons.
Pike's Market in Seattle sells wild Porcini (1999 picture):
I got a good sack of them yesterday in the Uintas. Here's an example:
Their season in Utah is approximately August 1 to September 10. They will be popping like crazy on the North Slope of the Uintas after the last two days of rain.
