The harvesting and marketing of
mushrooms in the province is a relatively
new activity, but it is currently one
of the up-and-coming values of the
country world. The high quality of these
products makes them one of the most
highly sought in the restaurant sector.
Despite the fact that edible mushrooms are produced across the province, most of the volume that is marketed comes from the countryside around Sanabria, Carballeda and Aliste, which is also where most of the processing companies are based.
The extreme climate, with cold, wet winters
and dry, hot summers, means that
there is only a short period of time for
harvesting these products, which is reduced
to just over one month in spring
and around two months in autumn. However,
the climate and the characteristics
of the soil, which in the districts that
produce the highest volume of mushrooms
is siliceous with low carbonate
content, give this natural foodstuff its exceptional
organoleptic properties. Of
the large number of edible mushroom
species that live and are produced in
this area, the most highly appreciated
for the table include: cep mushrooms
from the edulis group; Caesar's mushrooms;
chanterelles; and delicious lactarius
The cep mushrooms that grow in these lands, especially those that come from rockrose areas, have an intense flavour, a pleasant aroma of nuts and a texture that is terse and compact. This is why they are highly appreciated on international markets under the designation of Zamoranitos.
Since autumn 2010, the mushrooms of Castilla y León have carried a quality mark that helps distinguish the different species, certify their origin and guarantee food safety through the supervision of batches by mushroom experts, together with certification by the health authorities and traceability controls.
