I finally took the plunge and ate my first wild, foraged fungi today. A few of us went out to the woods with one of our Polish DPhil students, and we found a couple of large patches of Honey Fungus. He is very experienced in gathering wild fungi from home and had no doubts about the ID for these. We also found some amethyst deceiver and shaggy ink-cap, but I didn't bring any of these home.
I took half a dozen home but only prepared and ate two of them - just in case I reacted. I boiled them for 5 minutes first (my mushroom book recommends this to remove some toxins) then fried them for a couple of minutes in butter and olive oil and was very pleased with how they turned out - a nice flavour and texture.
I realised afterwards that I should have done a spore print first to check that they had white spores, and am doing so now. Not many spores yet but they do look white on the bit of black card that I'm using for the base. I'd do this before eating them next time if I gathered them myself.
Anyway, no ill effects yet.
