Those who have tried it speak of the mushroom of St. George as excellent, much appreciated for its early appearance, reaching high prices in the market, especially in the Basque Country, Catalonia, Aragon and north of the province of Leon. This gastronomic delicacy whose price can reach 100 € / kg. grows in the meadows of high mountains, in circles and in coniferous forests. It is a very aromatic spring mushroom and in the kitchen it serves both meat stews and scrambled eggs. In the Basque Country it is known as a txiko dog and in other areas as a spring mushroom.
