Our return from holiday saw our lawn littered with various autumnal fungi. Yellow boletes were in abundance, one variety edible…
Another quite poisonous!
If a blue hue appears after cutting or breaking! Steer clear, not good to eat!
I ended up binning the lot sadly, I just couldn’t get John in on the idea that the edible ones might just taste nice!
All destined for the bin!
Though on the other hand I also found a good amount of field mushrooms in the orchard!
I enjoyed these fried in butter on a piece of sourdough toast!
John on the other hand went for the shop purchased chestnut mushrooms. Also very tasty however.
On the subject of foraging still. My blackberry jelly that I made yesterday has set to perfection overnight. The recipe is certainly to follow!
