Amethyst Deceivers


Gathering Amethyst Deceiver

Amethyst deceivers are pretty little purple things , with a scary name only because the white variety look like many other species .

Amethyst Deceiver  - Laccaria amethystea

You cannot mistake these purple beauties for anything else and they were growing in abundance on the Cotswold Way looking very beautiful with autumn colours , lunch with a stunning view and a picnic of Pieminister Pies ( Picnic in a secluded spot No. 11 in the Guardians 50 sexiest places to be fed ) The do mail order now if you are not lucky enough to live around the corner from the shop

I have eaten the deceivers before in salad and sushi but for supper on Friday night we needed a hit of protein so it was salmon with a salad of amethyst deceivers , boiled new potatoes and fresh spinach , dressed with warm balsamic vinegar , honey and dijon mustard .

deceivers gently fried in butter to accompany , scrambled egg , smoked salmon and soda bread, which I have to say more sexy than anything else ……. with Saturday kitchen..

    We seem to be finding the same fungi as each other – although you are finding your slightly before me. I hope you find a big patch of penny buns next week :)
