Fall season is mushroom season
This year I have seen more people picking mushrooms than ever before.
Hexenröhrling, chestnuts, Tintenschopflinge, porcini mushrooms and what they are all called. The porcini mushroom is probably the most famous of them all! And since my husband loves mushrooms so much, it has almost become a tradition to go mushroom hunting together in the fall. All eyes are eager and everyone wants to discover the best and biggest mushroom first. Have you ever been mushroom hunting with children?
Watch how children’s eyes light up and grow big when they discover their first mushroom. It’s just so cute and fun to teach them about the forest in this fun way.
Did you know that the toadstool is, among other things, a guide to porcini mushrooms? It’s much easier to spot the bright red caps and look for porcini from there.
Where do I find mushrooms?
In the forest is already right. Porcini mushrooms especially like it very sparse. Look for moss-covered areas between the trees. You can also find more mushrooms after heavy rainfall and a subsequent rise in temperature. Never eat mushrooms raw and make sure you have identified the right mushroom. Sites like Mushroom Guides can help you with this.
If you don’t want to search for mushrooms, you can also find them in your local supermarket. But I promise you, mushrooms you find yourself taste a lot better – just because of all the excitement and joy of searching & finding.
