This year, mushroom season seems to have started quite early. Last weekend I was up in the Midlands and was out on a blackberry hunt when we met a couple of people out mushroom-gathering. I thought it was still a bit early in the year, but there were definitely plenty to be found.
I stuck to the Boletus varieties because it's relatively easy to identify with their spongy gills, mostly safe and I didn't have my mushroom field guide on me.
Even so, with a half-hour search, I managed to find enough mushrooms for some mushrooms on toast and a good wild mushroom risotto that did for my lunches last week.
So if you're out and about, take your mushroom guide and keep your eyes open. Just be careful only to eat mushrooms positively identified as edible!
