Autumn Foraging

Autumn is a great time of year for foraging for mushrooms. Across the UK there are so many varieties which taste amazing! This week we found a few different varieties including a large crop of Bay Bolete. These fungi are cream coloured when you break into them, then they turn blue and brown in a matter of seconds , old ones seem to turn a more vivid blue , strange as this is such an unnatural food colour yet very edible. Never collect or eat wild mushrooms unless you know what you are looking for - it's easy to mistake a breed of mushroom and make your self very ill.
