The Jade Mushroom – a feast for your eyes

September 3, 2010

The Jade Mushroom, Russula virescens, is commonly found in markets in southern China, Laos and Thailand. It is currently for sale in the Yunnanese markets, where you can find endless variations in green shades and patterns, just like in the jade stones. In Yunnan it is often fried in oil, while in Thailand people prefer to make watery soups. A Scandinavian style of cooking russulas is to mix many species, as each species may not offer exquisite flavours. The mix of russulas should then be fried with low heat until the water is gone, after which you add cream and some salt, allowing plenty of time for simmering. Serve with a pasta!
