There it was, just crouched in the buffalo grass like an alien. I found a monster mushroom on the front lawn this morning. Breakfast anyone?
This hand-sized mushroom looks so delicious. I wonder if it’s poisonous. More important, what would it taste like grilled in a wide-bottom crêpe pan, in chopped garlic and butter with a dash of the left-over red, a noble Stellenbosch shiras? Just a medium pinch of mixed spicy herbs and a smaller pinch of masala. A sprinkle of rock salt. Well, okay then. I’m going to try that now and get back to you. Just kidding.
Seriously, the small mushroom that looks like a miniature hedgehog. What would that taste like, I wonder . . . (6 photographs)?
