Using up the mushrooms that got squished at the botton of my backpack … I know grey food v.unappetising but tasted good… parasol mushroom and shaggy ink cap two hours from field to mouth
Long walk gathering shaggy ink caps on Saturday was disappointed there were not more field mushrooms…. enough to rest under some tasty Wiltshire Gammon steaks as it grilled with just a few dots of honey salt and pepper.
Gammon was eaten with the mushrooms , new potatoes and peas with a tasty green parsley sauce
Melt a heaped tablespoon of butter in a pan
Remove from the heat slowly add approx 5 tbsp of plain flour
Return to a gentle heat and keep stirring
Slowly add three quarters of a pint of milk .You really have to add it slowly and keep stirring or you will get lumps
Add loads of finely chopped parlsey salt and pepper .
Ink Caps really do have a lovely silky texture but full of flavour perfect on toast or if they get a bit crushed in your bag in a soup .
