Mushroom, Slippery Jack (Suillus luteus) on the Rocks!

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Slippery Jack (Suillus luteus), one of the most common edible mushroom. As you see on the photo, it can grow almost anywhere!

When it grows, you can pick enough on one spot to feed a family.

Young specimen is preferable, as the mushroom is susceptible to get wormy in the mature stage.

Yes they are, but some people need to take the skin of the mushroom head off, otherwise they get slight diarrhea.

It does not affect me.

Thank you for your like and comment. LIKE! well, maybe it's edible, but I prefer seeing it on this beautiful picture. With all our discussions about foot it looks a bit too slimy for my taste (we are omnivorous but I leave this to vegetarians ;-)

I collect these, when there is not much else.

The slimy cap has to be skinned, but otherwise it is very good mushroom.

It is very good cooked in rabbit stew...;-)
