The best foraging related activity in the Autumn: mushroom picking

Just like most Finns, I love going to the woods for mushroom picking with my family! After all, us Nordic people have hunting and gathering in our dna. Here are some of the lovely pictures that I took when we went mushroom-picking in the nearby forest. 

Our boys in the nearby forest

Milk-cap mushroom (Lactarius torminosus

Bilberries (Vaccinium myrtillus)

An anthill


Misc. mushrooms

Yellow foot mushrooms (Craterellus tubaeformis) and golden chanterelles

We found also a few Porcini mushrooms

put some butter on the pan...

then add in the sliced porcini mushrooms! I serve these normally with some sourdough bread or pasta!
