Mushrooms Are Amazing
October 14th, 2016
Collecting maitake mushrooms with naturalist Alan Muskat near Biltmore estate in Asheville, NC. I always love a good mushroom hunt!
…while harvesting delicious maitake and blewits near the Biltmore estate in North Carolina, we found this perfect example of the Destroying Angel…
A nice patch of blewits (Lepista nuda).
Blewits up close, the name comes from “Blue Hats” due to their colorful tops.
A bounty of maitake mushrooms – also known as hen of the woods.
Here’s the fruit of our mushroom-hunting day near the Biltmore House in Asheville, NC.
Sauteing the blewit mushrooms (also called blue hats) brings out their flavor. Just add a little olive oil and some seasoning and you are ready to go.
We put our bounty of blewits, along with potato and onion, into this Spanish omelette.
