Swedish nature: collecting berries and mushrooms in the forest...

Swedish forest have over 100.000 different mushrooms! Only around 100 of them are eatable. With my friend Karin, a real mushroom-connoisseur, we have collected in some 1,5 hours a bag of chanterelles (de. Pfifferling/ bg. Пачи крак) and 2-3 boletus(de. Steinpilze/ bg.манатарка). For our luck we also found some fresh blueberries as well as red lingonberries.

The mushrooms we did cook later in the frying pan with some edame-beans (on the top we put a piece of goat cheese). The berries were the final touch of our dessert: a Turkish yoghurt plus fresh honey (the one we got from the Rosendals terrass)....really yummy!

Attention: the mushroom below is one of the not edible ones! But it was nice for the picture...

The pretty mushrooms are always poisonous. This is one of the things I'd like to one of these days - go mushroom and berry hunting in Sweden. Maybe next year if I decide to get my master's degree at Lund...
