It is Shaggy Mane season. Well, there’s really not a season, it depends on rain and temperature. But when the weather dips in the fall, and after a few days of good rain, they are around – popping through lawns, mostly along rural roads.
This picture is evidence of my food-nerdiness. The mushrooms have simply been scraped of their ‘shag’, and split from their stems. Cooked gently in butter, and paired with an egg fritatta and a nice cheese is one of those culinary things that’s incredibly simple yet sophisticated. And if you’ve never tried them and can be at my place for lunch or supper in the next week, let me know.
