Yup - think of it as extra protein. Yummy

We had some Parasols yesterday, our first foraged mushrooms as prior finds have never seemed quite as solidly identifiable.

I have been banned from picking Shaggy Parasols. Mr Shan suffered from a 'mild tummy upset' after eating them and he claimed I had tried to poison him. Honestly, if I'd wanted to poison him I'd have done as far better job of it.

not the tum upset but the sentiment

"parsnip" soup milord to be followed by a fish delicacy and after that the dining surprises continue

i am not certain if parasols do or dont have a trace of the stuff that some of their close relatives have, the synthetic version is antabuse but the natural ones have a similar effect with alcohol

re a "trace" with shrooms that have active compounds the variability between individuals, climate when picked or local type is remarkable.

old and going off can be an issue with shrooms as can some sorts do not suit some folk (than can be dont suit unless cooked that way)

more for you

I thought they were delicious. Mr Shan spent the night vomiting loudly and was offended when I asked him to keep the noise down. I did point out that we had both eaten the same batch of shrooms... he claims intent to do severe bodily harm. It would have been a shoddy effort on my part.

it may be unconnected to dinner or he might have become sensitized to them.

i am well cautious with shrooms, if you were ok you probably will be eating those in the future, mr shan might be wise to be a bit shy of them.

if he wants to try rubbing a bit on his lip that should give an indication if it was the shrooms, most sensible folk would decide not to just in case .

plenty of other shrooms

Don't worry, he won't be going near them again. Oddly enough, he doesn't react to Shaggy Ink Caps.

Coprinus mushrooms, shaggy ink caps or shaggy mane, (they quickly deliquesce after picking) contain a substance that will not affect people UNLESS you drink alcohol while partaking. The substance is released in the alcohol. It is similar to the Antabuse prescribed for alcoholics in the hope it will so nauseate them they will stop drinking. As if.

How do I know? Try sauteed coprinus on toast with a couple of glasses of sangria. A few people are immune to the substance, can eat the mushrooms and glug the wine with no ill effects. Like my friend who did not think to warn me because it doesn't affect her.

My DIL seems to react in the same way as Mr. Shan to quite common bought mushrooms but hasn't altogether pinned down which, so she has to avoid all of them. Unfortunately last time she had an incident was after eating a pie she was assured didn't have mushroom in it, so she has to be very careful. As she is disabled, it makes it particularly hard as she can't get to the bathroom very fast.

Alcohol was of course involved.

Not with DIL. She seems to have a reaction to some mushrooms.

That is awful I absolutely adore mushrooms. I have a friend whose young daughter is allergic to tomatoes and the poor girl adores them.

Neither of our two boys like mushrooms. It's just CRAZY!

I'm checking under the trees but no edible shrooms as yet.

Disinherit them.
