A treasure of the forest

The turion, or lidrìc di mont (or radìc di mont) is a greenish brown plant that grows in the mountains (1000-1800 m) in the woods. It grows in acidic soil, among pines and alders, in the little mountain valleys and along streams. It is a protected plant, very rare, and can only be gathered in limited quantities. The sprouts are used, which have a slightly bitter taste. They are washed, cooked in oil, vinegar, white wine, herbs, salt and sugar, and pickled in their cooking liquid. Turions may be used to make frittate as well.
