When I lived out in the country I came across this huge special white mushroom when I was walking through the hills.
It looked like one that was very valuable or one that was deadly. I just admired it and kept on walking...
I'll look at it. Smoked a joint. Can't right now

Every fall schools all across Sweden teach kids about edible vs poisonous mushrooms, yet still every year there are plenty of mushroom poisonings and even deaths.


We'd go picking Cantharellus cibarius both for it's taste (delicious) but in large part due to it being so distinct that it has no poisonous mushrooms that it can be confused with.

We called them fox mushrooms, I have no clue why, but they were second class when it came to best tasting and are the most common when it came to picking wild mushrooms in mixed forests.
The top tier were the browncaps, Boletus edulis ....

and red pine mushrooms with concentric circles ....

There is a third tier and a fourth tier of taste and delicacy when it comes to mushrooms, but the red pines are my favorites....
