December. Mushroom time. It's colder and wetter, just like last month, and mushrooms love that. Parasol fungi and mushrooms have had their day, but there is so much more. The amanita caesaria, Caesar´s mushroom, for example. In northern Europe, it is barely found. Here it is. It emerges from the ground as an egg and grows into a large, shiny, ochre-yellow mushroom with a cap of up to 18 cm. It does not have its name for nothing: a mushroom worthy of an emperor. So delicious! With the truffle, it competes for first place culinarily. Another present for us!
