Chanterelle mushrooms have a similar flavor.
When I lived in the country, outside a small village 100 miles north of Montreal, the locals gathered a wild mushroom they called popinskis. I think this is it. We couldn't find it in our mushroom identifying book, but everyone else ate them with no ill effects, so we did too. I never found any, but friends gave us some.

I just remembered. It was the Polish immigrants who taught the villagers that these 'shrooms were edible.

Sounds like the ones.
They come out in the fall and feed on decaying deciduous forest debris. They glow in the dark!

I thought of that joke when I say the thread title but I have standards.

i asked one of my polish neighbors that are right off the pierogi boat from warsaw this past spring, and as their english isn't great yet they didn't quite understand what i meant by mushroom. struggling to find a word, i changed my question to use the plural "funghi".

my neighbor stanley suddenly lit up like he understood and resonded that we should use his cousin slava, because he knows a lot of jokes and can play the accordian...

(is that up to standards, andy? lol it tpok me a while, but there's the non-offensive polish joke.)
