AKAMOMITAKE; 2nd mushrooming

This time as 2nd mushrooming trip arranged by my friend curryman, she joined it first time.

I was not sure if she could walk around for a long while in forest, but she was a good walker and seemed to be interested in mushrooming itself.

This hole was likely famous for this fir tree. We Japanese call it 'MOMINOKI'.

So today's mushroom was 'AKAMOMITAKE', which were seen often around fir tree. Its orange color was the feature.

It took long time to clean it by hand, because its surface was wet and sticky.

We cooked it as TEMPURA, deep-fried in batter. So nice to eat!
