Tasty Albino Leccinums

albino leccinumI have been finding more and more of these mushrooms, which–unable to identify the exact species–I have dubbed albino leccinums. These are clearly of the genus leccinum, and all leccinums are edible except those with orange caps. They are clearly mycorrhizal with white and red spruce, and I tend to find them in the shade of dense copses of spruce a day or three after a bit of rain. They stay good a long time, unless vermin find them first. This one is untouched by vermin. These have a nice meaty texture and a flavor like a fine cep. This one weighs about six ounces. It’ll go great in tonight’s pasta sauce.
