More mushrooms



Mushrooms along Sorlampi nature trail
in Espoo, 5.7.2014.

I'm pretty sure this is a Lactarius rufus or
rufous milkcap or red hot milk cap.
Kangasrousku in Finnish and pepparriska in Swedish.

Wikipedia notes that it is not generally
recommended for consumption, but that it is
eaten in Scandinavia after canning.
In Swedish Wikipedia says that it is
supposedly eaten in Finland after canning.
In Finnish Wikipedia says that it is canned
and often used for mushroom salads.
A guide I have goes as far as to say that
it's an excellent edible mushroom.
Funny, isn't it?

  1. Ihan sama mitä kirjoitetaan - en tykkää sienistä :) Taidan olla ainoa joka ei voi sietää sienien makua...

    juu, kuvia voin katsella, kuten näitä, ihan upeita ovat! :)

    1. Kiitos! Syön sieniä ravintolassa tai äidin luona. Kukaan muu perheessä ei syö sieniä, joten en kerää enkä tee sieniruokia kotona.

  2. The edible lactarius is quite crunchy compared to other mushrooms and they add an interesting feel to mushroom dishes!
    Keep well Gunilla!

  8. Dear Gunilla,

    very funny! I like pictures of mushrooms, I don´t know why, but they appear to have personality. (I also like to eat them... a bit weird, isn´t it?.)

    1. Thank you Ruby! It's strange how the poisonous ones always look so delicious, isn't it?

  11. Dentro de los lactarius hay varios que se parecen mucho unos a otros. Para diferenciar entre los que son comestibles y aquellos que no lo son yo sigo la siguiente regla:
    Látex anaranjado y/o rojizo: Buen comestible.
    Látex blanco: No comestible y/o tóxico.
    Un abrazo,

    1. Thank you Miguel! You have to be careful with mushrooms. This mushroom needs to be cooked in boiling water for at least 10 minutes before using.

  12. I like seeing the undersides of this mushroom. I like mushrooms but I'm not brave enough to eat wild ones. :))

  13. Alltid morsomt å se hva de ulike oppslagverkene sier om saker og ting. De er ikke alltid helt enige.
    Flott bilde av spiselig sopp .)
    Ha en fin dag.

  17. Hienoja kuvia, mutta sienet ei säväytä minua, ja kuten blogitsekaan, en minäkään syö sieniä lainkaan. Ei meitä taida kovin montaa olla suomenmaassa, jotka ei innostu sienistä :)

    1. Kiitos Orvokki! En syö kaikkia sieniä. Ymmärrän niitä, jotka eivät tykkää sienistä. Koostumus voi olla hieman "kumimainen".
