Puck’s Plenty Foraging: The Blewits
Imagine you are a novice mushroom hunter and come across a mushroom that is strikingly blue. The first thought that comes to mind: “Keep walking.” Ah, but that would be a mistake. For these radiant fungi are rated “choice” by National Audubon’s Field Guide to Mushrooms. They are meaty, large and a plus to any meal. Thankfully we can find them right here in Stratford, many a time growing alongside such wonderful edibles as the Lactarius Deliciosus and, later in the Autumn, the Lepista Irina and the Fawn mushroom.
After our local search we will move on to trails only fiftenn minutes from town to collect Honey and Oyster Mushrooms along with wild edible plants and herbs.
Join us and out why!
Start time: 10:00 am
