Boletus Edulis AKA Cep AKA Porcini
A liitle early but these are growing just off a main road! Nice with a bit of butter fried for about 5 minutes.
This is an unknown – that means caution – investigation – research and respect. I avoid any form of white gilled mushroom after April. STOP PRESS! Research indicates this is called “The Prince”, well respected and very edible but as white shrooms can be miss represented and very poisonous(fatal) I remain of the opinion to respectfully view and appreciate from a non edible distance!
These are Parasol Mushrooms – Edible but not that tasty (in my opinion – I know people who love them!) but pure theatre.
The Plot is blooming – blooming hard work!
