Notes: Pompon mushrooms are also known as pom pon blanc, lion's mane, bearded tooth, goat's beard, bear paw, and sea sponge. The shaggy ivory puffs taste like a cross between sweet fresh crab and delicate bone marrow.

How to Make It

Discard dark or soft spots from mushrooms. Quickly swish mushrooms in cool water to rinse, then drain. Cut into 1/2- to 3/4-inch-thick slices. Melt butter in a 10- by 15-inch rimmed pan. Turn mushrooms over in butter; arrange side by side. Bake in a 400° oven about 10 minutes. Turn slices over; bake until browned, 10 to 15 minutes more. If making ahead, let cool in pan, then reheat in oven 4 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
