Memory isn't too good. Reminded by Colin Davidson.
(Alright I know one shouldn't answer ones own posts.)
Morchella esculenta (couldn't remember it before)
Marasmius oreades (but only when reasonably big otherwise it's hard
Leucopaxillus gigantea (worth a try, occurs late autumn to winter)
Xerocomus chrysenteron (gets too mushy)
Lepiota rhacodes var. hortensis
Armillaria mellea (very sickly, only once)
R. vesca (these last 4 pretty good)
R. rosea (don't bother)
R. parazurea (probably, what I thought was cyanoxantha wasn't good)
Lactarius deterrimus (not as good as deliciosus and best grilled!)
Boletus luridus (thought it was erythropus, not very good)
My total now up to 63 - a lot more than I realised.
I have not got round to the Grifola's, always got something better
after collecting it.
Colin - Clitocybe nebularis is quoted as risky - what is it like?
Amanita rubescens - How long should one cook it? I can not find
consistent comments on it (Marcel Bon says it's good but everyone
else reckons it needs care).
