Living Skills: Wild Mushroom Hunt


From March till mid-May, it is time to go wild mushroom picking! This is the second PSN mushroom hunt in 2016 and the registrations are open to members only.

As we do every year, we will go to one of the State Forests beyond Blue Mountains, identify and collect edible mushrooms, then prepare a scrumptious lunch. 

A mini-workshop on how to preserve the bounty will be run after the lunch. If you would like to pickle some of your harvest, bring a sterilised jar (100-200g size) with a twist-on lid.

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.

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


For registration please click the button to the left or email mmossakowska@yahoo.com.au

We meet in Blackheath at 9 am, from where we will drive for about 1 hr to one of State Forests. A map with directions will be distributed in the week before the trip.





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
