That’s boletus edulis; here in Slovenia they’re called jurčki, playfully pronounced your CHkee. These were a gift from my aunt last weekend, the first she found this year in Slovenia’s south-central Brkini hills, and wound up in the finest omelette I’ve made in a very long time. The recipe:
- Three eggs, scrambled
- Two jurčki, cleaned and chopped
Fry up in a pan and enjoy.
Write that down, you’ll be tested on Monday. Until then, enjoy your weekend.
