lactaire sanguin

saffron milk cap

Lactaire délicieux ou sanguin

Lactarius deliciosus. The lactaire sanguin or red pine mushroom is the tastiest of all milk cap mushrooms.

Orangish or beige, it grows in pinewoods and is especially appreciated in Catalan lands (where it’s called rovellò), where they like to grill them; in Provence it’s called a pignen or pinin.
