Mushrooms; Nameko (Pholiota Nameko)
A bright orange mushroom variety, particularly-popular in Japan, where they are cultivated. They are sometimes called Butterscotch mushrooms because they have sticky caps, which would naturally protect them from frosts in the wild.
They have an excellent flavour, and are good added to soups and casseroles, when they develop a jelly-like consistency.
