October Mushrooms – 03/10

Encouraged by yesterday’s success, we decided to go out mushrooming again.

Fortunately, the rain stopped and we nipped out.

Just down the lane and around the block; a little foray of about 2 hours (maybe 4 miles?)

Here, the Girlie is being disgusting with a Bolet orangé (Boletus aurantiacus) that we found!

In France, Bolet orangé isn’t often picked as people are scared off by the colour!

That’s a shame as they are very tasty and stand up well to cooking.

I suppose I should add that I am allergic to small examples of this mushroom; anything over four inches, though, has no effect on me?

Yes, we did get wet again but…

We found some gorgeous mushrooms!

Just over a kilo of boletes and about half a kilo of Rosé des prés (Agaricus campestris) from the back garden!

Girlie! Stop being so rude! What would your mother think? A nice little Bay Bolete (just one of the many nice little bay boletes that we collected!)
The Girlie spotted this Cep! Well spotted Girlie! Isn’t she a beauty? And the cep’s not bad either!
Another Bay Bolete hidden away… And another one!

I know where you’re hiding. I can see you! An Amethyst Deceiver (Laccaria amethystea.) The stems are inedible but the caps taste and look lovely!
After a few miles the basket is beginning to fill up – just look at those lovely ceps! It started raining on the way back. Still an excellent foray, though!

All the best
