Growing mushrooms and edible mushrooms at home is a very rewarding experience, besides being easy and practical, it is a good opportunity to be a home gardener and learn more about the world of mushrooms with the whole family.
One of the methods of cultivation of edible mushrooms such as Pleurotus is done by mixing or sowing the mycelium with straw (which is the substrate in which this variety grows). In another of our articles we explain how to proceed with the preparation of the straw.
The cultivation of Pleurotus ostreatus in alpacas is one of the most used methods by edible mushroom growers. This variety is related to the thistle mushroom Pleurotus eryngii and is consumed mainly for its flavor and easy identification.
Infundibulicybe geotropa is a basidiomycete fungus of the family Tricholomataceae. It is a well-known species in certain areas; it is collected for edible purposes. It grows well into the late season, November and December. It is found in forest meadows, in the middle of thickets, where the vegetation makes access to it impossible. It occurs in gregarious form, arranged in rows or in more or less regular fences (sometimes fairy rings). It is not very widespread. The variety presented is typical of white spruce forests. It is edible and tastes good.
It is edible and tasty. However, only young specimens should be used. It does not lend itself to drying, as it acquires a hard, tenacious consistency, which makes it practically unusable in any culinary preparation.
The mushroom finder. chapter 15: clitocybe geotropa. platera.
Le 24/11/2004, Garibaldi a supposé :I imagine that it can be done with the nebularis too, no? the platera I have never had the luck to find it, however it seems that the nebularis (and the blue feet or violetta) follow me, and now after these ice cream is what we have left. Thank you for this recipe which looks very good (with what I like chicken livers on top, I’m going to lick my fingers; well, if I find mushrooms of course!)Let’s see if there are more mushrooms out there?we still have chanterelles (cantarelus sibaris), cat’s tongues (hydnumrepandum, especially for the costum), pardinas (lepista luscina) to prepare.Greetings–Ceci is an automatic signature of MesNews.Site : http://mesnews.no-ip.com
Post by chuferluI imagine that it can be done with the nebularis too, right? Hello Chuferlu, be careful with the Clitocybe nebularis (here called pardilla) because it cost me personally 24 hours of vomiting once (since then I have not tried it again). It is a mushroom of those considered «suspicious» and not always feel good.if you use it I advise you to remove the cuticles and boil them 30 minutes (discarding the cooking water) before officiating as I said.Salu2.—Manu «The air we breathe is a mixture of oxygen, nitrogen and advertising».
– Stem: Cylindrical, central, spongy, slender, somewhat claviform. Its height is slightly disproportionate to the cap and cream color lighter than the cuticle and darker than the lamellae. It is common that the base of the foot is tomentose; a white fuzz appears.
– Flesh: Scarce, thick, light creamy white, somewhat spongy on the stem and more tenacious in the cap. Sweet taste when young, somewhat bitter when adult. Its smell is very pleasant, reminiscent of bitter almonds.
– The old Clitocybe inversa (Scop.) Quél., today Paralepista flaccida (Sowerby) Vizzini, very easy to confuse, has easily separable lamellae from the cap and a cream color that becomes more evident with age. The foot is more fibrous and the more orange-colored cap has a margin that is persistently rolled. Reaction of the flesh to potash varying its color to yellow. It usually grows under conifers.
– Care should be taken not to confuse it with the «white Clitocybes»: Clitocybe cerussata (Fr.) P. Kumm., Clitocybe rivulosa (Pers.) P. Kumm. and Clitocybe dealbata (Sowerby) Gillet. toxic, much lighter in color and less decurrent laminae.
