I absolutely LOVE mushrooms! Yet I know nothing about which are safe VS poisonous... so I just stick to buying from my local grocer, lol! My mouth's watering looking at those pictures, though!

I bet you get lots of edible mushrooms in your area.

here on the west coast of bc...................some mushrooms are just starting. I went through my mushroom reciepts from years gone by and Nov. 22 was the latest the pines ever came in.
yesterday I found the first 3 pines of the season in my spot.

These mushrooms sell for around 20 euros a kilo ($25 or 16 pounds sterling).

Folk have been known to get into fights over who has the right to pick them.

Darkevs, they are indeed 'Lactarius deliciosus mushrooms' or Red Pine Mushroom. They grow under pines in the acidic soil hereabouts.

Sorry if I led some of you guys astray, didnt know 'shrooms' has an illegal connotation.

Either a very brave soul or one who was very desperate.

Same goes of Acorns, how the heck did our Ancestors come up with the idea of washing them in a running stream for 3 days to wash out the toxins, drying them, pounding them into a flour to make a kind of cake/bread.

Many years ago a friend of my son decided to eat a mushroom he found in the woods. Within minutes he collapsed and only because my son and his other friends were there and ran for help is the reason that boy survived. He was deathly ill for many days and had side effects for weeks afterwards. Needless to say he never touched a mushroom ever again, not unless his mother bought them in a supermarket that is.
I have to say even the most seasoned of mushroom pickers needs exercise caution when picking as so many edible and non edible share similar characteristics. Maybe that is why my sons friend ate the mushroom he did, my son said it looked like a common mushroom the type you can buy. Luckily he didnt bite into it, me personally, I have on occasion decided to play it safe and discard what I have collected simply because it is just too easy to make a mistake.

By the way, the ones in my pics, they were delicious .

You guys must think the worst of me if you thought I was writing about magic mushies.

not me, they are pretty minor in terms of drug abuse in UK, done them a few times when i was younger had a laugh and all that, wasnt anything terrible.

In my opinion of you can remove it from the ground and "use" it without any science/chemistry why is it illegal? Its more natural than most legal drugs..more natural tham alcohol, more natural than cigarettes, more natural than painkillers.

I guess first and foremost because the government can't stick tax on them.

Followed by if they can be grown pretty easily folk would be running around growing them left, right and centre and possibly getting up to mischief which might start costing the government money ie, hospital visits etc.

Sure there is some other reason, but for the life of me I can't think of any right at this moment in time.

Cobra venom is more natural than cigarettes and alcohol, as well.

Probably not a great idea to "use" it, though.

Nom nom nom

My other half hates mushrooms, almost like a phobia. If I even talk about mushrooms, he feels sick.

We had dry-rot in the house last year and we had to vacate for a couple of months and live in a hotel while it was sorted. I found these bit shelf mushrooms growing up the wall behind the sofa and he freaked out! He even threw out all the furnature that was fine but had been in the same room as the 'shrooms LOL! I dont think this has helped his phobia!

Oh, heck, he'd best not come over here at this time of year, every food shop has literally boxes and boxes of different mushrooms of all shapes, sizes and cost (59€ a kilo was most expensive I saw last week). They're practically a religion here and to say you don't like them is sacrilege.
