One Cepe and nine Parasols; not a bad start to the mushroom season. We also have a few field mushrooms in the paddock.
The lot above (or part of them) provided us with a really delicious Omelette for lunch yesterday, and I'm hoping that upcoming forays will provide a lot more.
It's still dark as I write, but I shall be out there in a couple of hours!
The Omelette sounds lovely.ReplyDelete
I am so impressed that you know which mushrooms to pick.
I concentrate on about 6 varieties that I know extremely well.Delete
It's better to know them more than well. Every year people get intoxicated or even die. I buy my mushrooms on a farmer market, we got very nice specimen over here. And as it has rained a lot the season will be wonderful.ReplyDelete
Unless you know what you're doing; leave well alone.Delete
I just don't trust my judgement. I'm always tempted when I see so many about.ReplyDelete
In which case just look for Parasols at the moment; you can't go wrong (but show them to a neighbour, just in case).Delete
Early birds gets the worm...ReplyDelete
Mushroom pickers have their secret spot; you certainly have your own special places.

I'm just back from the woods. No Cepes, just one Parasol, and a few Field Mushrooms.Delete
Another season another culinary masterpiece thanks to mother nature. You enjoy the best! Can't get more fresh or localReplyDelete
From woods to pan in a few minutes!Delete
While I don't like eating mushrooms, I do enjoy wandering the paddocks, finding them and picking them.ReplyDelete
I expect you are talking of bought white mushrooms. If you tasted a Cepe omelette, you might change your mind.Delete
I am probably meaning picked mushrooms from the paddocks that had to peeled and were sometime dried on strings. I don't like any form of mushroom.Delete
My mouth is watering at the sight of those mushrooms Cro. I haven't seen a field mushroom here yet and the bought ones are tasteless in an omelette.ReplyDelete
I went to market this morning and passed a field that was FILLED with field mushrooms. I've never seen so many. Of course, here no-one eats them!Delete
The only mushrooms we used to have here were the pine mushrooms, not very tasty,the trees went down here and no mushrooms now.ReplyDelete
Mushrooms are a sign of damp weather, so you are probably better off.Delete
I used to eat lots of mushrooms but cut back after the Chernobyl cloud. You'll be ok if you're in an area where it didn't rain when the cloud passed over. It's easy enough to check.ReplyDelete
I'm still alive Gwil; and the last time I checked, I didn't glow in the dark. I think we're OK.Delete
The Retired Man hunted for mushrooms while he was growing up. I wonder if he could do the same now. Best for us to buy them.ReplyDelete
They're cheaper if you find them yourselves.Delete
They look tasty. -don't trust myself to know how to pick the non-lethal ones growing around here.ReplyDelete
Go out one day with an 'expert'. You'll never look back!Delete
