These were growing amoungst the Manuka (Leptospermum scorparium) with the odd silver birch amongst them. Anka Bitenc is Slovenian and knows more about fungi than I will ever know. The fungi in this site all seemed to be like plants that have been suffering from a lack of light all very elongated and very tender. Very good to eat though. had them for dinner that night. cooked in cream with garlic, salt and pepper to taste, on noodles.
mixed regrowth all about 20 years old at the most, there were a lot of mushrooms here we collected enough to last the Winter as mushroom soup and various other dishes. One good way of preparing them for freezing was to mince them first and then freeze into meal sized portions. Then would put a bag into the pot and it was done.
