  1. I must get myself a book on mushrooms & what’s edible
    Any recommendations?

  6. Look for some ceps. A fairly safe bet if you find em

  7. Made a soup with them last night. Bit of crispy smoked bacon and a crusty baguette delcieux :)

  8. The parasol is edible ...but there is one very similar ...which from memory on what i read in a book changes to a pink colour when the cap is separated from the stem . Don't Know how toxic the non edible one is .

  10. Yeh, ceps AKA Penny Buns , AKA Porcini are the ones to go for. Quite easy to identify and the most tasty.

  16. Mm, Fly Agaric, you’d be crapping through the eye of a needle, while looking for a girl with collider scope eyes.

  17. Shaggy Ink Caps can be eaten when young before they go inky ....but apparently not to mixed with alcohol ...don't know what is supposed to happen to you .
    A mate of mine did eat some when drunk , but said nothing happened But he was drunk ...prehaps he was sick outside and forgot .
