Living Skills: April Mushroom Hunt

This is the second and LAST mushroom hunt in 2015 and the registrations are open to members only!

The recent weather has been great for mushroom growing so we should see plenty when we go to one of the State Forests beyond Blue Mountains. You will learn to identify and collect edible mushrooms, then prepare a scrumptious lunch and also learn how to preserve the bounty. Your guide will be Margaret Mossakowska.

WHAT TO BRING
Small knife, fork, eating bowl/plate, water, drinks (wine if you wish), and a perforated container for collected mushrooms (wicker or plastic baskets are the best). Be warned that we do pick a lot so don’t bring something too small.

If you would like to pickle some of your harvest, bring a few sterilised jars (100-200g size) with lids.

Please wear good shoes and warm clothes, including rain gear.

By popular demand a second 2014 Living Skills mushroom picking tour beyond Blue Mountains is open for registrations!

As usual, we will go to one of the State Forests, identify and collect edible mushrooms (Saffron Caps and Slippery Jacks). These are easily recognised (also recommended by the State Forests), but just to be sure, Margaret will check all finds in your baskets.

Then we will prepare a tasty lunch and also learn how to preserve the bounty by pickling
