I'm sure I've mentioned before that 2020 was a rotten year for mushrooms, so we can now but dream of a far better 2021.
We always like to encourage people to eat wild mushrooms, whilst making sure they don't just start 'picking and eating' any old thing.
One of the better wild mushrooms to start eating is the delicious Autumn Parasol Mushroom. It's also one that you can't mistake for any other.
Above are Kellogg and the Cherub with a fine example. As you can see, it is very big and very distinctive. It's almost the size of an umbrella. Don't bother eating the stems.
I just hope that this Autumn we shall still be here to enjoy a few more.
N.B. Just in case you should find some, fry in olive oil, salt only very slightly, and absolutely NO GARLIC.
