In the fields this morning Amelia came across a huddle of Shaggy Inkcaps, Coprinus Comatus.
Eat Shaggy Inkcaps when young and white; as they turn red to black and the rims curl up, the flavour becomes unpleasant.
Mushrooms on Toast
- Is it not quite the best way to eat Mushrooms? Fried with Butter and Garlic, served on toast for a late Autumnal breakfast.
Chop the Mushrooms and fry in a touch of Butter, a tonne of Garlic, a sprinkling of Salt and Pepper.
Serve on Sourdough Toast, scattered with Parsley.
With their delicate flavour rising through the garlic... keen to breakfast on these again!
