Russulas on Toast
450 g (1 lb) russulas R. nitida, R claroflava
2 shallots
1 clove garlic
50 g (2 oz) butter
4 slices of toast


Clean and trim the russulas without discarding the stems. The washing can be done under a running tap as they don't absorb much water and the leaves and grass stuck to the caps will loosen after they have been run under the tap for a minute or two. Do not peel but chop into 2 cm (1 in) square pieces. Peel the shallots, slice them rather finely and chop the garlic. Cook for about 2 minutes until they are soft and then add the mushrooms and fry for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

They are lovely served on toast.

Russulas do not break up and go soft like shop mushrooms and they have a slightly crunchy texture with a very mild flavour. Make sure you only use the good edible species, many Russula species are either too bitter or too caustic to eat.
