Fungal Finds

A great variety of edible fungus has started appearing. I was out through the week and found the first Penny Buns (Cep/Porcini) of the season...very exciting as this is definitely one of my favourite fungus', a rich, deep flavour when fresh or in dried form and very versatile. Field Mushrooms seem to be more abundant than in the previous few years (or maybe i'm just striking it lucky this year with regards to locations). Horse mushrooms, Fairy Ring Champignons and Bay Boletes are also plentiful and delicious.
