Candy Caps, a member of the Milk Cap family, are a highly aromatic mushroom with a sweet, maple flavour. Leave Candy Caps out in the kitchen and the room will soon smell like maple syrup. Their unique and unmistakable flavour pairs best with desserts like pancakes, cookies, ice cream, and cheesecake, and they are particularly effective when infused into water-based sugar syrups and cream.
How to Use
Dried mushrooms can be reconstituted by placing them in any kind of warm liquid (water, broth, wine, cream, etc.) for 15 - 20 minutes. Place mushrooms in small bowl and just cover with liquid. They can then be used in any application that calls for fresh mushrooms. Make sure to save the rehydration liquid for using in recipes. Try our candy caps as a base for soups and sauces, combine with eggs in a scramble or omelette, incorporate into a risotto, or toss with pasta.
