Still some very nice winter chanterelles to be had in the #galloway forest. They tend to last best under conifers where they aren’t swaddled in damp vegetation. Although these actually stopped growing well over a month ago, their thin flesh, hollow stems and insect resistance allows them to get soaked and dry out, and freeze/thaw many times.

A lovely wee clutch of pristine oyster mushrooms. I guess the lustre of these fine fungi has somewhat diminished now that they are so widely cultivated. But I refuse to buy any mushrooms and these still feel like a huge treat when I find them, especially as they aren’t particularly common near me, and are often at their best in deepest winter. They make excellent mushrumami seasoning (sprinkle with salt, press in a sieve overnight and bottle the juice that runs off) and can still be rinsed and cooked after. They are particularly fascinating because they could be described as mushroom hunters themselves - their mycelium lassos then digests nematodes.

The one brilliant thing about living in the middle of a rainforest are these funky Fungai clusters popping up absolutely everywhere 🍄 . . "Mushrooms are miniature pharmaceutical factories, and of the thousands of mushroom species in nature, our ancestors and modern scientists have identified several dozen that have a unique combination of talents that improve our health."
