The kings of mushrooms. Part I – marčnice
This boots we’re meant for.. mudding 😀 mud bathing even;)
Where? In secret forests..Ljubljana area !
What for ?
marčnice –Hygrophorus marzuolus , that can be hunted for just few more weeks, announcing soon to come..the season of mushroom picking in Slovenia !
Slovens are really keen on protecting their best spots of mushroom hunting , protecting even when they think season has started so no competition will disturb their trophy hunt. And mushroom hunting can get really though and competitive ,every mushroom you discover is a reason to be proud. Specially after being awake from 3 in the night,so you get there among the first hunters..
I ate the best meals with freshly picked mushrooms, so tasty! and I envy them for protecting their hunting & trophy preparing secrets so well… so.. I have to give to Slovenians the title “kings of mushrooms” !
