I've never picked wild mushrooms before, but I have often noticed distinctive mushrooms on the field at the end of the road. I looked them up and learned that they are shaggy ink-cap mushrooms. They're good to eat, and almost impossible to mistake for anything else. I promised myself that when I saw them again, I'd try them.
I picked one today and had it in an omelette for my lunch. It was tasty - just mushroom-y I suppose. If someone else had cooked it and given it to me, I might never have noticed it wasn't made with ordinary mushrooms from the shop. But knowing I had identified and picked it myself a few hundred yards away (and combined it with eggs from my own chickens and parsley from the garden) it made a more satisfying lunch than your average mushroom omelette.
