Tyra's Garden is a small garden on the island of Resarö situated in the inner part of the archipelago near the small town Vaxholm, outside Stockholm. Tyra's Garden is mostly an ornamental vegetable garden, my potager. But flowers are of course an important ingredience, for beauty and pollination. The climate in these parts is quite demanding as the northerly winds can be strong and cold. THIS BLOG 'Tyra's Garden' is not entirely a gardenblog it contains much more.

Monday

Cantharellus cibarius - Chantarell/ Kantarell

This Harvest Monday comes from the woods
...
...
A MINI field trip out in the woods.
...
I just love these wonderful last days of summer when it is still warm and the air is crystal clear. A few days in the woods, looking for chanterelles, breathing in the fresh air and clear you mind. I think it is kind of a meditative feeling of walking in the woods. You can sit down for a while on a stone or log and just relax, no telephones, no voices, breath in -breath out... just the serenity of the forrest.

The golden yellow Chanterelle - The yellow gold of the woods
...

This is a favourite mushroom, beautifully golden yellow and so delicious.
...
Here is what wikipedia says about Chanterelle/Kantarell:
Cantharellus cibarius, commonly known as the chanterelle or golden chanterelle, is a fungus. It is probably the best known species of the genus Cantharellus, if not the entire family of Cantharellaceae. It is orange or yellow, meaty and funnel-shaped. On the lower surface, underneath the smooth cap, it has gill-like ridges that run almost all the way down its stipe, which tapers down seamlessly from the cap. It has a fruity smell, reminiscent of apricots and a mildly peppery taste (hence its German name, Pfifferling) and is considered an excellent food mushroom. Up to 6.7% of their tissues is vitamin С; as for carotene, they can be as much as 23.1 %, surpassing all known mushrooms.
Kantarell (Cantharellus cibarius) är en ätlig svamp som växer i löv- och barrskog. Med sitt karakteristiska utseende och tydliga smak är det en svamp som är näst intill omöjlig att förväxla med någon giftig art, vilket har gjort den till en av de absolut populäraste matsvamparna för amatörplockare. Säsongen är vanligen juli-oktober. Kantarellen är en utsökt matsvamp som går att både konservera och frysa in. Torkning skall dock undvikas då kantareller blir sega och beska av det. Arten är allmän upp till mellersta Sverige, men förekomsten norr därom är blandad. Arten finns dock även i fjällen i fjällbjörksregionen.

Kantarellerna får sin gula färg av
karotenoid-pigment.

The old wood
...

This is the old wood, it is definitely the favourite. It is dark and quiet, the whole forrest is covered with different kinds of soft mosses. Here you kind find for me 'exotic' plants like Vaccinium uliginosum (Odon/ Northern Bilberry) or Trientalis europaea (Artic starflower/Skogsstjärna). The old forrests are often called 'the woods with the trolls' and if you have a great imagination you can actually see them, they look almost like John Bauer's wonderful trolls.



For late supper a pie with a filling of mature cheese and sundried tomatoes. Of course I got some lovely chaterelles fried in real butter to go with it... tomatoes from the greenhouse and a glass of claret from Bordeaux, oh it was so good.

We have so many mushrooms that grow around here, but I haven't a clue if they are edible or deadly poison. I do so love mushrooms of all kinds and yours looks delicious.

WOW! Beautiful mushrooms come from beautiful forests. In Germany during Chestnut season I remember seeing mushroom pickers in the forest, I thought they were looking for psychedelic mushrooms, but who knows maybe they just wanted a delicious treat. I love, love, love your vintage mini!!

Mushrooms look yummy! I can relate to the meditative feeling of walking in the woods in complete serenity; right now it is that very tranquil feeling which is eluding me in this daily chaos.

Kantareller finns det mycket av i år. Har plockat och plockat och stoppat i frysen. Västerbottenpaj är god till nästan allt, tycker jag. Vi åt den till havskräftorna, helgen som gick....
Önskar jag kunde hitta lite Karl Johan svamp....
Ha det gott
