GOLD DIGGING ...... off into the woods:-)

Yes! This is it; the Gold of our Woods. September is the months for picking
these mushrooms. That`s to say,depending on the weather,some might even
pick them from end of July. They are called "KANTARELL" in Norwegian and
in Latin: Cantharellus Cibarius. I have picked them since I was a young girl,
having them for dinner is my special treat!

Off into the woods last September. GOLD DIGGING is what we call it.
The whole family always used to go once a year. Picking and looking out
for snakes,moose etc. You never know what comes in you way. Seen none
of either,though.
As you can see,trying to look our best:-)

Lovely look on a wet and rainy day last September.

Still looking at its best.

Please believe me; it tasted delicious (although wee bit burnt,
missed the beetroot and bought in the shop at NOK 229,- pr.kilo!!!

At least my table-mat looks
perfect :-)

Heldige du som har funnet en kurv full. Her er det nesten svart skog i år - utrolig lite å finne.

We hunt for our equivalent to your gold mushrooms - Morel mushrooms here in the spring - so I understand what a wonderful treat mushrooms can be! Mmmm...
