Dentinum repandum (Fr.) S.F.G., Hydnaceae

The Hedgehog Mushroom appears in the fall. The lower cap surface is covered with tiny tooth-like projections. It has a mild flavor somewhat resembling chanterelles, some say.

Wild edible mushrooms have anti-inflammatory and cholesterol-reducing properties. They enhance the immune system and they assist in reducing blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

We wild-harvest our hedgehog mushroom in September in the wilderness of Northern Saskatchewan.
