A St George's Day forage wouldn't have been complete without finding some of the tasty edible mushrooms named after this day… and we gathered them in relative abundance, despite the lovely dry weather we've been having of late. Fungi usually appear after rain, but on the evening of Wednesday 23 April, the rain held off while we foraged on Chorlton Ees and arrived at cooking-up time, when we made our mushrooms disappear, cooking them up with a mix of foraged greens including three-cornered leek, wild garlic and Easter dock, and serving the whole lot up al fresco with some crispy comfrey fritters.
