Pine Mushroom Pitte (fritters) Posted on 20 Mar 17:43 , 0 comments
(Pine Mushroom Fritters) Serves 3 - 4
Pine mushrooms have a very brief availability in the heart of Autumn.
They have a distinctly strong forest floor flavour which sets them apart from other mushrooms. If Pine mushrooms are difficult to find you can substitute with another
strong flavoured variety like a Swiss Brown.
These pitte are a perfect spuntino (snack) for a weekend afternoon gathering with friends.
