Most of these varieties I couldn't identify so I was losing hope of ever having dinner by foraging. When we were about to turn around and give up to the oncoming rain, I spotted a beautiful circle of field mushrooms up on the grassland:
There were dozens of them, and they were huge! Here's my total forage bunch of beauties:
And here was my treat when I came home:
Puffballs and field mushrooms on toast. It really was an amazing find to spot those field mushrooms and it shows that going out for a few hours can provide you with a delicious dinner and all for free! I used John Wright's book on mushrooms as a guide so please please know what you're eating before you eat it.
This is the season to mushroom hunt, so grab your wellies and go and explore!
