Of course, gathering all those mushrooms meant that pappa and I had to pick over the mushrooms--dust off leaves from their tops, snip off their bottoms, and slice them down the middle--for SEVEN hours today. We watched films to while away the time and managed The Clash of the Titans, Finding Neverland, Jonah Hex, and an time-traveling, timeline-disrupting episode of Stargate SG-1.
I never thought mushrooms could be so demanding. We are trying to dry them on newspaper, which soaks up the moisture.We had to spend a while this evening changing out the soggy newspapers for fresh ones. Can't help but feel mushrooms are like babies who need their nappies changed.
