I promised you Girolles, and here they are.
Above is what they look like when I return from the woods. Below is what they look like when given a good wash. Girolles are one of very few mushrooms that have to be washed under running water!
Tonight we shall eat a Girolle omelet. Price €250 Chez Maxim's in Paris; but free chez Cro.
N.B. These mushrooms are actually apricot/orange in colour....I've no idea what happened with my camera!
