It's a late season down my way but the Ceps and Bay Boletes are just coming up.
I hauled in about 5kg of Ceps and 20 of Bays yesterday and the the airing cupboard now smells very fungy. Everything smells very fungy.
I have enough of them to last a while, so will only pick a meal's worth at a time until the Wood Blewetts pop up. yum!

Reindeer love Fly Agaric. There was a Scandinavian tribe called the Berserkers who used them before attacking their neighbours. Nuff said!

THere are very few poisonous mushrooms- only 3 or 4 will actually kill you in an agonising "sorry but there is no remedy" manner, and there are many that are edible.
The best descriptions, pics and recipes I have found are in Antonio Carluccios "Complete Mushroom Book". It isn't complete; it only deals with yummy ones and the ones you should avoid.
There are too many pics of a fat man walking round some misty woods but it is a tenner well spent!

We have loads of Parasol Mushrooms here at the moment, but very few boletus of any description. Not tried Wood Blewits before, what do you use them for?

Fly agarics taste awful and they upset your stomach, plus they make you behave like a lunatic! :shock:

Aparently, the trick is not to eat the fungus directly. The beserkers found that if they got the reindeer to each the fungus, then they drink their urine, they didn't get any of the sickness associated with them, just the hallucinogenic effects. :lol:

You must be a week or two behind me then; last week was Parasols, but there are no new ones this week in the woods over the road.
Wood Blewits are a late crop, playing chicken with the first frost. You can't mistake them; they're lilac in colour and smell sweet. They're great with venison.
My best spot for them is on the perimeter banks of an old iron age village on top of the North Downs.
