The candy cap mushroom is a common specimen that grows in many areas of North America. Its name comes from its sweet, maple syrup flavor.
These dried candy caps can be reconstituted, but we would recommend adding them to soups and long braises dried and allowing them to infuse their flavors directly into the cooking liquid.
When ground in to a powder it’s often used in cookies and cakes, or used to infuse milk for candy cap custards and ice creams.
