Mushrooms and Mushrooms

Found some mushrooms at the foot of a Magnolia tree at the nursery.   I’m not an expert of fungi but I don’t think they’re edible.  Better stick to the ones I found at the produce market, I think…

    They’re beautiful. We occasionally find large orange mushrooms on our property. They’re not poisonous, but they’re not edible either, alas.

    don’t you have a book about fungi or can look it up in the internet, Mary? But always be careful with mushrooms.

  3. Yes – dont touch the ones under the Magnolia in pic – but theres nothing that comes quite as close to Italian Porcini as locally collected Orange Saffrons or Slippery Jacks (found under old stand pine tree plantations) as we get into winter (peel off that sticky top skin first on SJs – took me a while to work that one out and taste much nicer) Orange saffrons are easy to identify as bruise easy and go blueish – I dried a heap and use in slow cooked casseroles and Osso Bucco.

      Yum. I have collected those mushrooms, under pine trees as you said, in Kangaroo Valley. I was with someone who can identify them and she pointed out some poisonous lookalikes.

    Those yellow ones are something. Enchanting, really. Never seen anything quite like them.
