Not Dead Yet!

Yesterday's mushroom experiment was a success - no adverse effects at all!  And, since these mica caps lead short lives, I wanted an opportunity to really cook with them.  This morning I went out and harvested all the intact little ones I could.  The book says they are better when they are young, before the gills start to turn black.  So I left the big ones in the grass and took only small ones.

Once inside, I brushed them off (don't wash them, they get soggy), chopped up a shallot and a tiny pepper from a Brasilian pepper plant and fried it all in butter.  Then I made an omelette.  And it was GOOD.

  3. Good thing I got them when I did. I went out for more today and they have all disappeared. As I said, they lead short lives....
