    Caroline… I have a question about field mushrooms – how do you know which ones are “safe” to pick? What about the ones that have magical properties? Are they easy to tell apart?

    The best way of mushroom picking safely is to go with someone who actually knows what they’re doing. That’s why guided mushroom hunts are so good – they will show you the safe ones and I’m sure if you ask, they’ll point out the magic ones too! Once you’ve seen a field mushroom, you won’t have any problems in identifying them but, if in doubt, don’t eat.
