Yep & very nice too, though you have to carefully remove pine needles & wildlife from all the folds
They dry very well too.

This rain is finally kicking things off. Not many CEPs yet - hopefully still to come. But amazing year for Cauliflower fungus. Normally only see one every couple of seasons - but seen loads this year. ...

Interesting observations - speaking personally, it's been the most spectacular year for Ceps for many years. Not much in the way of other shrooms (except other boletes). Last two or three years have b ...

I found a big patch of yellow strainers 2 seasons ago. They do look very similar to "field mushrooms" & only the yellow staining at the base of the stipe & the slightly "inky" smell to give it ...

Interesting - I must try that. Generally I just dry them (when there's any to find - grrrrr) in the dehydrator and then straight into the storage jar. I guess I'm concerned lest they absorb moisture a ...

To me it makes no sense imposing a total ban - a knee jerk reaction. I can understand and support the desire to clamp down on commercial picking which often strips out whole areas irrespective of edib ...
