The Candy Cap Mushroom (Lactarius rubidus) has a unique taste among mushrooms. When dried, the Candy Cap has a sweet maple syrup aroma.  Candy caps have a mildly sweet flavor and are used chopped or powdered to flavor deserts. They are often served with smoked meats as they have a flavor that makes a nice counterpoint. These mushrooms should always be served apart from other flavor masking ingredients because of their unique flavor.
