Suillus cavipes

Dry, hairy, brown capped Suillus often with remnants of partial veil on the cap edge. Large yellow angular radiating pores. Stem at apex is smooth, but hairy below. Base is hollow. Found under eastern tamarack (Larix) in damp areas. Perhaps the best-tasting Suillus.

Cut thin slices (for cooking or drying) and cook until brown and crispy. Taste is nutty.
