HORN OF PLENTY

We were so excited to come across these gems while out foraging 🤩

🌿Horn of plenty is also known as Trompette de la mort. Although this translates into English as "trumpet of death" this mushroom will neither kill nor harm you. It is In fact a delicious addition to any meal and a prize amongst foragers.

🌿These mushrooms are usually black, but can be grey, silver or brown, particularly on the outside and they are funnel or trumpet shaped.

🌿Due to their dark complexion these mushrooms are notoriously hard to spot hiding amongst the leaf litter in woodlands so keep your eyes peeled while out and about!

🌿These mushrooms can be dried and stored for a long time, Great for a future meal ideas!

Happy foraging everyone! 🍄

Mushroom to look for
Something to look out for this month 👀🍄

AMETHYST DECEIVER

These mushrooms have a pleasantly nutty, mushroomy scent and flavour. They are not the most substantial mushrooms however, they are often found in their hundreds and will brighten up any meal.

🌿Amethyst Deceiver
🌿Scientific name: Laccaria amethystina
🌿Found: June-November ☀️🍁❄️
🌿Found growing in mixed wood, particularly with beech and oak.
🌿Average height :6cm
🌿Average cap width: 4cm

Deep purple when young, fading to pale brown or tan, and eventually to a creamy white when dry.

** POSSIBLE CONFUSION**
Amethyst deceivers could potentially be confused with its lookalike the lilac fibrecap. These are poisonous mushrooms and great care should always be taken when identifying (See our youtube channel for help identifying: youtu.be/Z_xjkrkfXNs )

🌿Please let us know if you need any assistance or information and remember to stay safe and never eat anything unless you’re 100% sure it is safe to do so.

Happy foraging everyone! 🍄
