Last weekend I went out in the forest to pick mushrooms.
I found lots of different kinds, and thanks to my eminent fungus and forest guides I knew which ones to pick (mum for the mushrooms and dad for the forest)
I left this cutie and quite a few other ones.
On the train home I could proudly present a punnet full of them mushrooms.
Ready for cleaning and parboiling.
I found a new favourite mushroom, it's called tegelsopp (Leccinum versipelle). I love muchrooms cause they look so weird, and taste so yummy. The black on its foot is actually not dirt, it's the mushroom's skin. It turned darkish when we parboiled it with the strävsopp (Leccinum scabrum). We have yet to taste it.
I also found kantarell (Cantharellus cibarius), trattkantarell (Cantharellus tubaeformis), smörsopp (Suillus luteus), karljohan/stensopp (Boletus edulis), sotbrun vaxskivling (Hygrophorus camarophyllus), citronslemskivling (Gomphidius glutinosus) and taggsvamp (Hydnum repandum).
