I think I paid about £3 mate. Found a big one last year cut bits off it for about three weeks, it keeps really well also i've found out you can freeze it. I think its my favourite fungi, there is a guy that has a stall at Totnes market most Fridays sells fungi and mushroom "Oyster Mushroom" growing kits.

Try forestry fir woods up on the Moors there are millions of them "Winter Chanterelles" come now, they are good and dry really well.

Cheers Arry

Excellent thread, just wish I was more confident in identification as I always see a lot out and about.

Saw these ones today and it made me think of this thread.
Any ideas ?

Did it go blue when it was cut? have you got a pic of the hole stem? South Ham Hunter is probably on the money try cutting then licking the cut to check its not a "Bitter Bolet".

I'd pic one gl, it wasn't apparent until I had it in my hand it had the tinge. Same as the picture on the link it looked almost brown stemed

No, it didn't go blue, in fact I snapped one in half as was intrigued and inside it looked and smelt like a mushroom you would get in the shop.

I have the two halves in the truck so will picture it and post.

Thanks for the info, don't fancy licking something I don't know !

A few more pics.

Been reading up on the bay boletus, I'm not convinced unless this is an older specimen that's not recommended to eat.

Mate its okay there is a little rule of thumb with boletus if it does not go blue when cut and the is no red on it its okay. BUT there is a bolet that is as bitter as hell and will ruin any dish you put it in, its not poisonous so licking you would know, i do it to every "Cep" I find. This rule is not quite true as there are some that can be eaten and the "Bay" usually has a little red on the stem and the sponge on the under side of the cap bruises blue very quickly i.e. finger prints, the "Bay" is a good boleti. The "Bay" may have a little faint bit of blue when cut, usually the sponge on the under side is bit more yellow than the ones you have. The stem is usually bulbous on a "Cep" thats why I asked about the stem.

Cheers Arry

Thanks Arry, appreciate the advice.

I can see what you mean about the sponge under the cap, it actually feels like a sponge, but it is white no sign of any yellow or even a tinge of yellow.

Then I presume the dark brown under the sponge is known as the gills ?
