Shaggy InkCaps; Foragers Diary

Perhaps not the most obvious edible mushroom as it decays into a black inky mess over time but actually delicious if harvested when young enough.

A group of particularly large shaggy incaps. make sure you are selctive when harvesting the taller one in the centre of the picture has already started to decay.


These are more like it, the smaller ones which still have pure white gills are the ones you want, don't bother with the others even if they have only just started to turn. 

This is what they eventualy tourn into if left, make sure you always leave some, you shouldnt be harvesting all the mushrooms you find you should always leave some.

Washed, cut and ready for the frying pan
