...it sure tastes like it! I had a solo paddle on Coniston yesterday, what a beautiful place this time of year and peaceful too. Just what I needed. With the shore lines deserted, it left me free to drift around slowly exploring. Low and behold it's fungal delights were on show, and I managed a couple of portions of mushrooms, mainly common hedgehog, but also a few late chanterelles and a mini penny bun.

These 3 go really well together, and I've nick named them the Holy trinity. They make a great omelette, a couple of tips that I can share with you that really help are to try not to wash the mushrooms if possible, and leave them out over night to dry slightly, anything that reduces the moisture content a little will reduce the slimyness when cooking, also dry frying in the pan first will stave off moisture and when you add any liquid to the pan (I.e. butter!) They will readily soak it up.

This dish contains the holy trinity, served with a side of mushroom ketchup (also made from the trinity!) That has been blended with some jack by the hedge mustard for a little heat.

It looks delicious indeed. Did you know that the name “Holy Trinity” was already taken for food? It’s the Cajun name for the mixture of:
-onions
-bell peppers, and
-celery

its an ingredient in almost every Cajun dish.

To the Hidatsa and many other tribes of native peoples of the Great Plains, the "trinity" is: Beans, corn and squash.

With clear, strong and unique flavors, I like the mushroom concept the best.

A familiar combo for most eastern nations as well but the common name for it is succotash. from the Narragansett word “msickquatash."

Isn't this interesting? To the UK and Europe, the Neolithic is long lost in the mists of antiquity. Even the peoples are mostly a big unknown.
In the Americas, the Stone Age is what? 4-5 generations back, at most? Much of their technologies are alive and well. Their descendants walk among us.
