cardulinu’ e pezza

/kahr-doo-LEE-noo ee PEHTS-tsah/

A name in Sardinia for the king trumpet mushroom. Typically these mushrooms grow on the roots of wild thistles (cardo in Italian), hence the name. It may be eaten either fresh or dried, roasted or baked but the flavour is not highly regarded and the flesh is chewy.
