I've found some monster porcini before but they were all full of worms. I did find a nice 1.5 lb porcini with no bugs while hiking in the Olympics.

Relax, it's just the fruiting body of the organism. It's like saying he picked an apple and killed the tree

Picking a mushroom doesn't kill it any more than picking an apple kills the tree. Most of it lives underground in the mycelium, The "mushroom" part just pops up to deliver spores. Picking it doesn't hurt the main body. The fact that you have 2 smarts already shows me that this is not common knowledge.

it's really difficult for anyone to convincingly write accents in text... and all the love in the world... but in general, other nationality's accents is not where your strengths lie.

3 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
1 lb mushrooms halved
1 large sweet onion thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic minced

butter on med high - add some worch sauce and mushrooms. cook until browned then add the onions and cook until they become translucent. the mushrooms and onions will release moisture - keep stirring on med high heat to reduce to like a gravy consistency.  heat to low and add the garlic and cook for another minute.  salt and pepper to taste

Bondith: Subby, have you ever heard a real Aussie accent before?


I never have.  I once met a guy who I thought was Aussie, but we didn't actually talk.

I said, "Hey, do you speak-a my language, buck?"  He just smiled and gave me a Vegemite sandwich.

pretty sure I can't do it either!
I've got a friend who grew up in Australia, and her accent is quite softened by now but occasionally it sneaks out.

we were arranging an evening out over the phone, and she said, thoughtfully, [and this is as close as I can get it]
well I giss I could leave at foive

but that's a poor representation.

in writing, I think you either have to really go for it, or not do it at all.  Irvine Welsh opted for former, and he does actually pull it off...

To Dress A Dish Of Mushrooms
 
2022-05-26 5:23:16 PM  
FINALLY my State makes a world record or Fark headlone for something other than "world's most bizarre mass kidnap, torture and acid bath murders" (I think we hold at least three of the top five spots for that).

I could do with some nice porcini for a risotto. I  bought some excellent organic arborio rice this weekend but my wife always insists on a chicken prawn and chorizo style risotto I made as a throw together when I didn't have the right ingredients let alone rice for jambalaya.

I can imagine this mushroom, and other wild forest mushrooms, together with the great local produce from the Adelaide Hills to go in the risotto. A good splash of "Savvy Nun favorited!" wine maybe from Shaw and Smith or Bird in Hand wineries, homemade chicken stock and dried mushroom liquor, pecorino style sheep milk cheese, and herbs like thyme, tarragon, roquette and baby spinach from my own window box. Simple, delicious, and local. Any Farkers who find themselves travelling to Adelaide, you're in for a treat with our food and wine.

I guess that is supposed to be a sheaf of wheat but the stems look awfully thick.
Maybe its a sheaf of celery stalks.

Bondith: Subby, have you ever heard a real Aussie accent before?


I have! It was on TV! Some farker said he'd throw a shrimp on the barbie for me. That's got to be authentic because, in America, a "barbie" is a horrible little plastic doll that looks like a Kardashian. So, he talks funny, and I don't know what he thinks "shrimp" are, either, although it's probably been in the Kardashian.

Heh. Mushrooms don't last long before they turn to rot anyway.

TIL that Porcini mushrooms grow in a small area in the Adelaide hills. I thought they were limited to the Northern Hemisphere.

It's a sheaf of wattle
the emblem of our land,
you can stick it in a bottle,
or you can hold it in your hand.

Amen!
