Here you go a picture of the Helvella crispa - commonly found on the edges of paths.



Rogers Guide says its edible but poor - maybe good for stews?

Glad you included that one - my camera still isn't fixed. Had problems with the car over xmas/new year, so I haven't been here much!

P.S. Apparently the helvella crispa is good in a beef stew

Here are a few pics of a Larch Bolete (Suillus grevillei) found under larches (dur!). They’re tasty although a bit slimy. They smell good too.

I think that the best way to deal with them is to scrape the surface off the top (which deals with the slime issue), then pickle them. We're drying some at the moment to see if that works as well.

Hi Pete & Lena, welcome to the forum...Escape while you can...

Only joking, there are a few of us who are perfectly nice and sane.

Good pictures, are they from this year?

The larch boletes were from a well established plantation up in Cumbria, by the Eden. I think we found them on the last day in June. We see lots of them in North Wales too.

They seem to like mossy banks under larch, and warm, wet weather.

cheers, Pete
