Chanterelles. The gold in the forest.

in actifit •  16 days ago

We had a beautiful Saturday with sun today with around 17 degrees. Perfect weather to go out in the woods and search for cantarella. Today we had great luck and found almost 6 kilo. This is the first time ever I picked mushrooms, but with guidance by a colleague I now have confidence to go out hunting. It is a exciting "hunt". If you find one, there "suddenly" can be many around you, between and under gras and moss. It is also great exercise to walk around in the sun and looking for the gold of the forest. Today we had sucsess.

Wonderful pics!

The price of one kg of chantarelles is about €18 in Finland. If one mushroom weighs about 10 g, then the value of one is about 18 cents.

Picking chantarelles is like picking 20 cent coins. :D

Haha you can make more money foraging mushrooms than in crypto these days :)

Yes. In fact, most people would be better off just picking chantarelles right now than trying to earn STEEM. But @harkar seems to be doing both: he is picking mushrooms and thus avoiding to have to pay for them and he's blogging about it on Steem. :D

Quite right. The season is short and the mushroom is popular around the year.

beautiful mushrooms and lovely hike. Peak in background is gorgeous. Did you eat any mushrooms before freezing?

·

Yes. They are very goos frying/steak in a pan with some oil/butter, salt and pepper. Great snacks 😋 have spared a little to use as fresh. They can be saved some days.

Great hunt and catch, well done brother :)

·

Thank you 👍🏻, it is a fun hunt 😊

Ooh yum, I love mushrooms. Those type seem quite yellow in colour.

·

Beautiful views as usual. I wonder if people who live around the beauty of nature all of the time, take it for granted. I really appreciate that you share your reality with those of us that have a different daily view. I see beauty and majesty in nature all the time, but there is always another level. Awesome!

Thank you for nice comment and reflection. Maybe one can get blind for the beauty around us in the everyday life. I think the nature is beautiful everywhere, and each place has it's own beauty. Steemit and other platform give me the possibility to get a little peak from different places around the world and that is great. I love to be out, therefore pictures about that 😊
