Mousseron (Fairy Ring)
Mousseron mushrooms are an exceptional, yet small beige-brown colored bell-shaped wild mushroom. They are also known as fairy ring mushroom because they grow in a fairy ring or an arc (which means when you find one, you'll find clusters of them). This small and delicate mushroom has a real full-bodied flavor for its tiny size. Mousserons have a fleshy texture and a long, narrow and tough stem.
Colorful and quite tasty, mousseron mushrooms add a nice flavor to enhance stews, light soups, quiche, omelets and scrambled eggs. They can be added with other mushrooms to embellish ragouts and and stews, sautéed in butter with sweet red onions, or partnered with chicken or beef entrees. Some even say that this mushroom's sweet flavor even enhances the flavor of cookies.
