purple mushrooms

I have never seen these before, Charl found them.


I have not changed the colour, this is what it really is, charl and chris (see the link below) also have photos. Though I might have increased the saturation a little (5 or 10%). I cannot remember.

There are still many people of middle European origin that maintain this tradition of collecting wild mushrooms. It is tragic the misinformed people who try to destroy these traditions.


and here is a recipe using wild mushrooms:
