Paul and Rick came home from their early morning walk triumphantly carrying two giant mushrooms. They look like parasol mushrooms. But are they safe to eat? I consulted my Mushrooms and Toadstools of Britain and Europe book; they appear to have all the characateristics of the edible Macrolepiota procera.
Then I turned the page and see they also look a bit like the poisonous Lepiota cristata, or Stinking Parasol!
No, not going to risk it.
