Post Mushroom Haul!
With all the recent rains i'm sure everyone has noticed all the mushrooms everywhere, while most are to be avoided I did manage to find a bucketful this afternoon in the paddocks that are to be enjoyed rather than avoided.
Some button mushrooms as well as milk cap saffrons.
Risotto for dinner tonight I think!

I've got visions of that seen from Fat pizza when the guy eats some magic mushies and is driving the car like a video game :shock

I think I'll stead clear of your neck of the woods for a couple of weeks :lol:

Yum! What's for dinner for the next week :lol:

I went looking for saffron milkcaps on the weekend and found nothing :( and all my field mushies are maggot ridden :cry: :cry:

I found a new mushie on the farm which is interesting, same type of stem as the milkcap, light pink cap and gills, but ruffled edge... have to upload some pics :hmm

Bugger on not finding much, I stumbled on these by accident when I drove over some up in the back paddock checking the cows!

Yeah, I've been struggling to find Lactarius too... I went for a walk in the pines across from my house and all I found was old woody dead ones... Last year there was a bumper crop!

Yum they look mouth watering, I haven't had a field mushie of any sort for years. Enjoy some risotto for me too :) .

It would appear I spoke too soon on the Saffron Milkcap front- I picked 1.4 kg of the yesterday up on O'Connor ridge :D So, Breakfast today was lactarius mushies cooked with my home grown toms, garlic, farmers market capsicums, chives, oregano, and thyme served on crusty italian bread. So good! Tonight it's a mushroom risotto, made with fresh lactarius, dried porcini and shitake, mushroom stock, an onion, garlic, and heritage variety (white, purple, and normal orange) carrot base, and some organic short grain rice from the farmers market.

EDIT: The risotto was possibly the best risotto I've ever made. It really was fantastic! God, how I love mushies.

I'm always nervous about picking the wrong mushies so I tend to stay with the commercial grow your own mushroom box.

I always seem to end up with more than what they claim you can grow.
