It's certainly mushroom time of year around here and they seem to be popping up everywhere.
But I must confess to being a wimp when it comes to foraging mushroom.

I've been on a foraging course many years ago as it's something I'd love to have more confidence in, I probably own 6 or 7 mushroom identification books and yet I just feel it's not worth the risk.
I have plans to grow mushrooms in the future for my own consumption but in doing so I should easily be able to tell which ones they are but when it comes to wild ones I'm sure we've all read horror stories of misidentification and sometimes from people who claim to be experts.
So aside from field mushrooms do you forage for these wild treats yourself?
Or do you think it's not worth the risk?
