V1 A pair of my favourite eaters, The Penny Bun or Cep (Boletus Edulis)
V2 Not to be eaten (you'll only do it once, trust me)
This is one of the most sort after culinary mushrooms. Young specimens can be eaten raw in salads. They have strong mushroom flavour when cooked. Once dried, it is excellent for flavouring soups, sauces, stocks.
But with the influx of Eastern Europeans very hard to find quality specimens nowadays as they are out early and strip the woods bare unfortunately, taking more than they can eat.
Many thanks for the CC's on yesterdays upload
