Ref. 1 Cleaning mushrooms. After 4 to 5 hours in forest, picking mushrooms, cowberry and blueberries it is still 3 hours for cleaning. We used to be 2 doing this but for the moment I handle the camera. Another thing to admit is that I clean first and Rosie goes through what I have done. Ref. 1
This was a bad day. Only 2 baskets with (Karl-Johan) cep, rotcap, chanterelle and trattchanterell. Always we come home with some no god mushrooms, to be sorted away.
Ref. 1 Ready to start the work. When picking mushrooms it is one important thing, just pick the good, young and hard mushrooms. You have always a knife with you. Tap on the head and know at once if it is good. Ref. 1
A special day. Some days we were more lucky finding chantarelle. They are good to dry. Take small place, have no weight and for that good to bring home to Essing. But you can be stopped by custom for bringing narcotics mushroom.
Ref. 1
What you do next is to sort and classify in different heaps. Cep here and chantarelle there. Cook coffee and a bread. Start to clean.
Ref. 1
It looks nice. You can start with a smile and look for small worms. It will not make any difference because it will be cooked in over 100 degrees for a while then dry, freeze or preserve.
Ref. 1 Drying. You can also dry ceps. It is more difficult because they are much thicker than chanterelles. Use a car heater blowing into a box with mushrooms. It takes a day or two otherwise more than a week. Ref. 1
This is good. Drying in window on the sunny side.
Ref. 1
These are for drying. Put them on a daily paper in thin layer. Put it in the sun and save electricity.
Ref. 1 Walking in forest for mushroom. First you go around smashing all bad mushroom and suddenly you have found an area where you can pick full baskets. Sometimes it takes 3 to 4 hours next time you have filled up in an hour.
Ref. 1
Minda and Rosie changing area. Look att Rosies glanzing. It is also good not to be red-green blind. If yo are going out and always have difficulties to see them test your eyes.
Ref. 1 Two sisters. Having this kind of clothes, blue and yellow and green forest in background, are the ultimate for the cameraman.
Ref. 1 Happiness. Chanterelles always grow in groups. The feeling in finding them is enormous and thrilling. One always starts picking carefully and take away all dirt and later picking faster and faster. The companion may find a better place. Ref. 1
Mushrooms are happiness 1.

This is for Essing.
Ref. 1
Oh gosh. When are we ready?
Ref. 1
Okay then.
Ref. 1
Drinking coffee in forest during a good day. It is like heaven
Ref. 1 This is cowberry. When finding a place like this you can sit down and start picking with your collector. Some people prefer to take one by one. Girls must have a gene that men is lacking of.
Ref. 1 It is blueberry. Children used to have blue fingers for instead of picking in basket they pick in mouth. I can assure that this girl has not put any in mouth. To have blue hands shows that she helps the collector. Ref. 1 Best around a tree. Blueberry and cowberry are easiest to find round a tree or in a cutted area.You never pick both blueberry and cowberry. The latter mature later.
Ref. 1 Just go round the tree. Growing like this gives the blueberries more sun. Ground is a little higher up. Thats why. Ref. 1 Walking to the car. There are years when you can pick as much as you like. Always go down to the assembly point (car) and bring more baskets. Never pick in plastic bags.
Ref. 1 Resting. You must realize that these berries must be rinsed by hand. Dont pick more than you can take care of. Ref. 1
Coming home.
Ref. 1 Mashed apples. Apples should cook a little first to be soft. Then run it in a good kitchen machine so you get rid of all pips. Then cook with suger and some sodium bicarbonate. Put it all in hot glasses and close. Be healthy and eat all winter.
