Penny Bun Mushroom - AKA Cep, Porcini
September 2014 - The Penny Bun Mushroom (also known as Cep or Porcini) is possibly the most highly sought wild mushroom - I've picked it many times in the past, but for some reason, haven't written about it here, until now.
Beefsteak Fungus - Revisited
Last time I found Beefsteak Fungus (which was also the first time I found it), I wasn't able to collect it.
On a foraging walk in the New Forest in September 2014, I found a nice young specimen - and this time, I took it home and cooked it.
Hanging Clip-Top Storage Jar
September 2014 - Here's a fun little project to convert an empty instant coffee jar into a storage jar with a wire clip top - using a wire coat hanger.
When I was thinking the design through, it occurred to me that it might be useful/fun to preserve the coat hanger hook and make this into a jar that can be hung up on a hook, for example, under a shelf.
