My wife and I have been out and about visiting some spots that we like to check after the summer rains for wild edible mushrooms. Particularly of interest at this time are the Black Trumpets (Craterellus cornucopioides) and Chanterelles (Cantharellus spp.).
When I first try mushrooms…after multiple positive identifications, I like to fry them up alone in butter and try them on a toastie. It is a good way to get a true taste of the flavor without mixing too many ingredients.
Remember if mushroom foraging to trust yourself not me!
