Living Skills: Wild Mushroom Hunt


From March till mid-May, it is time to go wild mushroom picking! The famous PSN mushroom hunt is on again in 2017. After plenty of rain this season looks to be very bountiful - the mushrooms started growing in big numbers in early March! Your guide will be Peter Pez.

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. 

The registrations are open to members only.

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.

We meet in Blackheath at 9 am, from where we will drive for about 1 hr to one of State Forests. 





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

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.
