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.
To Reconstitute: Thoroughly rinse mushrooms and soak in 8 ounces of liquid per 1 ounce mushrooms for 20 minutes. You can also soak in milk in the refrigerator for up to 8 hours. Strain mushrooms. To store reconstituted mushrooms, keep in an air-tight container in a dry, cool place.
