Foraging Friday (week 24) Summer Fungi

Posted 15/6/2018

Hi folks, while I prefer to do the telling most weeks, there are times when I simply must bow to the foraging experts and today is one of those days! Many of you might be surprised at the notion of gathering mushrooms in Summer (they're meant to be a wet weather forage right?) but if there is rain enough to grow plants there will be mushrooms too - you just need to look in the right places and know what you're looking for...

Wild Food UK have put up a fantastically informative video so I shall pop the link below and you can have a good look at several great examples of edible Summer fungi including some varieties of Chanterelle, Boletes, and Charcoal Burner.

>>Take me to the video!<<
