Yanagi Matsutake/柳まつたけ

Japanese Food
Today, I bought a pack of yanagi matsutake.
yanagi = willow
matsutake = pine mushroom
Despite the name, yanagi matsutake has nothing to do with matsutake, but it belongs to the family Bolbitiaceae.

The label says, “Kaori to matsutake no hagotae” (Aroma and the texture of matsutake). As requested by my son, my wife put it in clear soup. I can’t comment how it smelled or tasted because we let my son have all of it. My son asked me to buy two packs next time.
