Like many others, I am too scared to pick at the risk of getting it wrong.

from the little I have read there are no hard and fast rules, i.e if it has a cup on the stalk, colour of the gills etc. It is a pastime I would love to learn .

If you are too scared to pick any fungi, try this easy one . A giant puffball ,easy identified as it is white and can grow to the size of a bootball. Dont the biggest as they can be alittle leathery, Sliced and dipped in garlic salt and fried in olive oil, Beautiful.

Also try the Inky nightcap which resemble a partly closed umbrella found anywhere, tend to be limp and as i mentioned inky , try the smaller ones .

If only our pharmacists were as competent as the French and Italians,when you can take your finds to them and have them checked.

Brandon Country Park do guided tours of Thetford forest throughout the year where they show you what you can eat how to cook it etc., Thetford Forest is one of the best places in the country for wild fungi.
For the beginner try St Georges mushrooms which sho their heads around St Georges day also the common garden 'fairy ring' found in a lot of lawns.

I always go for the easy to recognise ones - puffballs as already mentioned, and parasol too. Not many left now, their season is about done. Lots of shaggy ink caps around currently, but don't fancy the black mess you are meant to eat when cooked!

I see you have one of those space saving wall mounted ovens, How does that work? brilliant for cooking self-adhesive mushrooms in magnetic frying pans

You have to be careful even with shaggy ink caps because if confused with the common ink cap they can cause problems with alcohol Shaggy Ink Cap Mushrooms (http://www.rawgreens.co.uk/mushrooms/164-shaggy-ink-cap-mushrooms.html)



I read this the other day Fungus foragers warned over wild mushroom poisonings - ITV News (http://www.itv.com/news/2014-10-03/fungus-foragers-warned-over-wild-mushroom-poisonings/):scared:
