I have been interested in foraging for food for a long time. I even went on an organised walk once which showed me how to get sap from trees. I know the basics - blackberries, wild garlic, spanish chestnuts but I dont know anything about the daunting subject of mushrooms. This brilliant article discusses the fears, sometimes deadly consiquences and terrifying possibility of picking mushrooms such as the 'death cap' alongside the joy of foraging through the woods all day. I'm not so keen on mushrooms and this definately hasn't won me over!
