Agaricus Augustus..."The Prince"
This majestic stand of Prince mushrooms was surely a gift from the fairies. Discovered at night, they radiated an air of mystery and strong life force, a mushroomy agenda of GROWTH. I spent some time just digging them and photographing them before taking my harvest. And yes, I had them positively identified before eating....oh so delicious, an incomparable rich almondy flavor.
