Notes

Autumn is mushroom season. Pick them young and eat them quickly. Although quite expensive on the wider market, they are more reasonably priced in the countryside where there are many pickers. These special mushrooms must be handled with care. Mushrooms can be stored in the fridge for 2 days under a damp cloth.
