I took a short break from my writing today and wandered up to visit Zeph at his new cubby in the bush.
On the way there I collected some wood blewits (Clitocybe nuda) as a cubby-warming gift.
We cooked them on a small fire that Zeph had managed to start despite the soaked winter wood.
And made sure we cooked them well through as blewits contain a toxin that can be harmful if not well cooked.
I asked Zeph whether mushrooms shared closer DNA to animals than plants. He answered correctly.
Wood blewits are sweat meats to taste and before they're cooked smell of chocolate earth.
