I can just imagine trying to get them delivered across the border! I am going to have to find a Canadian Supplier and try the candy caps.

(Actually my friend with the gourmet store is trying to find them for me AND for her).

ROFL! The truth? umm... mail order mushrooms.
The earthiness of mushroom in LP's coffee and PF's tea were two of my favorite ideas on the challenge. And I'd never heard of candy caps. Can I just grind dried porcini, or is powder something different?

You can grind the dried porcini. I plan on using up the end of my dried as powder when my supply get's down there.

Nice company to work with and they have a wonderful selection of fresh and dried mushrooms. I trust their mushroom hunters talents more than I trust my own. Morels are next on my list along with some Oregon Truffles. Some fresh truffles, shaved and made into truffle butter...

I just got in trouble. The PTB have decided I'm staying home and I have to go put the Candy Caps in another ziploc, I can still smell them through three bags.

Yay for the PTB. As for the ziplocs, maybe you should do what I do with my chocolate supply. I have DH hide the box I keep it in (no Barbara, it isn't still in the fireplace!) so I can't find, or even smell it. Then when I need it (for cooking, not craving), he brings me exactly what I need and finds a new hiding place just in case!

They do have a strong aroma...

We have them in a double bag, in a plastic bin and you can smell em...

Might be time to see what can be made... I wonder how candy cap latte would be.

I do think they mapley flavor will mix nicely.

When we first tried the ice cream I felt like it had a mapley flavor with an undertone of coffee.
