    Ingredients

    black trumpet mushrooms.

    Black Trumpets are not easily cultivated, and their diminutive size (even the largest of these fragile, trumpet-shaped mushrooms does not grow much more than a few inches long) and dusky black coloring make them hard to spot when growing in the wild.

    The Black Trumpet Mushroom (Craterellus cornucopiodes) is related to the more widely known chanterelle mushroom. The mushrooms tend to grow in clusters in damp woodlands, especially forests that contain beech and oak trees, so when they are found there are typically several to be collected. Every autumn, mushroom foragers track down the elusive Black Trumpet Mushrooms. These mushrooms grow wild in wooded areas, especially near beech or oak trees, With its shape, similar to a cornucopia, this mushroom has historically been the Greek mythological symbol of plenty.
