    Do you pick up mushrooms?

    Sorry .... a country side girl here again (with weird topics) ... now as it is autumn ... do you pick up mushrooms? I like to pick up mushrooms. Already walking on autumn forests is nice.

    I'll pick up these:















    ... there are many many other (edible mushrooms) I'm aware of but I will not pick them. Simply as I don't like them enough (taste). Those above are enough for me. Listed from ''the best'' to ''the worse'' so to say.

    Who taught you , which were edible Mushrooms ?

    Once , when our tenant still had cows staying on our grass field , there were
    large Champignons growing , and my mum picked those .

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agaricus_campestris
    It is commonly known as the field mushroom or, in North America, meadow mushroom


    This was the only kind of mushroom , that grew at our place .

    Now I seldom purchase mushrooms in glass jars in some supermarkets :


    The odd thing about those canned champignons is ,
    that there are usually three different levels or classes ,
    with white being class 1 or A , grayish 2 or B and brownish 3 or C ,
    but the taste does not differ in my opinion .


    One can also order sets to grow champignons oneself at :
    https://www.pilzmaennchen.de/champig...non-boxen.html for example .


    And at plantopedia is a description about how to grow those champignons on straw :
    https://www.plantopedia.de/champignons-zuechten/

    By the way , what are the names of the shown mushrooms ?

    Pfifferlinge {chanterelles} I am able to acknowledge only as topmost linked picture .

    Those chanterelles are not artificially breedable in industrial scale ,
    and they are protected in Germany .



    Edit: Searching google for the picture does help (long tap menu) .

    From up to down (some seems to have several English names)

    * Chanterelle
    * Black chanterelle
    * Funnel chanterelle
    * False saffron milkcap (also called Orange milkcap)
    * Saffron milk cap and red pine mushroom
    * Penny bun, Cep, Porcino or Porcini
    * Northern milk-cap (also called Pickle milk-cap)
    * Woolly milk-cap (also called Bearded milkcap)
    * Red-capped scaber stalk
    * Milk-cap
    * Northern bearded milkcap, The northern milkcap, or The purple-staining milkcap,
    * Sweet tooth, Wood hedgehog or Hedgehog mushroom
    * Yellow swamp russula or Yellow swamp brittlegill

    ... all those milk caps (except 2 first ones ... saffron milk caps) will need to be parboiled 5 to 10minutes before they are edible. The rest above can be eaten as such.

    This is my favorite here ... a ''brain mushroom''. It grows at late sprint times and not now autumn like mushrooms normally. Bad thing is that it is deadly poisonous mushroom ... without cooking it first.

    Good thing is that you can simply make incredible good mushroom soup from it. Actually you will need parboiled it min twice (keeping it in boiling water in 5min and then change the water (fresh one) and again parboil it another 5min (max: 1 part mushrooms and 3 parts water). I often do that 3 times just to be sure.

    I mostly just pick the ones who look colorful and interesting, and bring them home to study them further. Only know a couple who are edible, and I don't come across them that often. One time a few years ago, I was out looking for mushrooms, and found one I was sure was the right one. Didn't have the patience to bring it home and look it up, so I just ate it then and there. When I got home and looked it up online, I realized it was the wrong one, and the mushroom I had eaten was closely related to a mushroom called 'Death Cap', which is the most lethal mushroom known to man. Whether or not the specific mushroom I had eaten was lethal, however, appeared inconclusive, from what I could gather. But needless to say, the following days had an aura of suspense. I've been a bit more careful about what I pick since then.

    I used to enjoy wandering around in the woods looking for Morels with my dad. But I never liked to eat them... I guess I'm not a very 'fungi'.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    Well ... I don't eat them as such. But some mushroom soups are pretty good, you can use them among of salads, you can make sauces from them (to beef/fish/chicken) or you can simply shallow-fry them (chanterelles) as such and add partly to you lunch/dinner.
    Mushrooms can also be preserved easily by frozen them or drying them. And lastly .... they are healthy food of nature ... not fatty/lots of calories.
