Long a European favorite, I have grown in the forest for as long as the trees. I can grow quite large, up to six inches high, weighing close to half a pound, but usually, I’m closer to half that size, with some of my family being only a few ounces. Don’t try to cultivate my friendship; I can only be handpicked, usually summer through winter. Some say I smell woodsy and of apricot; my flavors are all exquisite, from pleasantly mild to flowery or nutty. My name refers to my entire family, but is often applied only to the most favored golden child, amongst the many colors I wear. I have a very particular shape, but don’t blow me. You’ll want me firm, plump, smooth, clean and unbroken. All of me is edible and I retain my firm texture when cooked. Enjoy me fresh or cook me with my best friends -- chicken and other light meats, cream, starches and grains. You’ll love me simply simmered in butter. I also make a wonderful sauté, stuffing, sauce or side dish. Only some of us are good dried, since many of us won’t reconstitute well. Look closely and don’t confuse me with a look-alike, poisonous Jack O’Lantern in North America. I’m very low in calories, mostly protein and carbohydrates, with traces of vitamins and minerals. A Pyrenees dog breed, wildflowers, restaurants, and the first string of a violin share my name.
