Mushrooms

 

This choice edible is unique when compared to other cultivated mushroom varieties.  It's hollow stalk, viscid cap, and delicate ring (annulus) are pleasing to the eye.  However, the real magic in this mushroom stems from its taste.  Earthy and sweet, the dainty fruiting bodies are excellent when stir fried whole, or in the case of larger specimens, thinly sliced and well cooked.  A mushroom not to be forgotten when allowed to serve as a central ingredient.
