Funky Fungi Biltong

Mushroom foraging with a biltong recipe

It’s a crisp autumn morning, the mist comes rolling over the mountains, ominously… The day has finally arrived to go foraging after the recent rains and I go to the old apple grove I often frequent – they’re here. Walking through I had a choice of the best ones to pick from.
