So, what is lactarius deliciosus?

Lactarius deliciosus, commonly known as the saffron milk cap, is a vibrant orange mushroom that grows in forests throughout Europe and North America. This prized culinary ingredient has a meaty texture and a nutty, slightly sweet flavor that intensifies when cooked. The mushroom's cap is often used in soups, stews, and sauces, while its stem is typically discarded due to its tough texture. Saffron milk caps are known for their vibrant color, which comes from the milky sap that oozes from the mushroom when cut or broken. They are a popular ingredient in Mediterranean and Eastern European cuisine and are highly valued by chefs for their unique taste and striking appearance.
