Ah, the Dryads Saddle.
No idea but it was huge and whitish about 3 or 4 foot away from the base of a huge tree with a mate next to him of similar but a little smaller size.

Looked like one of these but massive.

Dryad's Saddle grows out of trees....



You've got to be quick in early autumn in Savernake or West Woods, as the Eastern Europeans will be in there..... they chuck stuff in the basket, which I'd never consider.

Why not? Just out of interest.

Inherent conservatism.... I'm OK with things which grow in fields..... giant puff balls, ink caps, field mushrooms and perhaps chanterelles in woods.  But that's about it.

I've not been mushroom picking since I was a kid, but we used to gather chanterelles and boletus for drying out or pickling.
Places like Savernake, Newbury, Forest of Dean and as far as the New Forest. Happy times, but the locations of the best places were jealously guarded.

I'd guess with more people having come in from Eastern Europe the foraging must be at an industrial scale these days.

I wouldn't pick any mushroom, safer to spend 79p in the supermarket  Smiley

My Mum's husband's son is a freeloading waster, Whilst living on a narrowboat one time he rang his dad and asked him to take him to hospital, he'd been foraging in the woods and picked some mushrooms 'for taste' and added them to a lasagna, or so he told his dad. He was jaundiced and very, very lucky he didn't do any proper damage to himself.

So yea, pick 'em and find out Cheesy
