Slippery Jacks!

Late February to early May is mushrooming season in Oberon, NSW. I’ve never made it out there … But I was super excited when I saw Slippery Jacks at the Castle Hill markets. Aren’t they pretty? I have seen saffron milk caps in the past, but first time ever for slippery jacks.

They had a very intense mushroomy flavour when stir fried with button mushrooms and garlic (nom!), and not as woody as the milk caps can sometimes be. This was a much more delicious (and edible) experience than the random grab bag of exotic mushrooms picked up from the markets on Las Ramblas a few years ago!
