MYCOLOGICAL SORIA, A FEAST AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
In the province of Soria you can find almost 700 fungus species, of which many are edible and are fruitful every year in the pine, Oakwood’s, Holm-oak woodlands, Juniper woodlands and beech forests, meadows, pastureland and riversides of the province. Their presence gives Soria a unique attraction revealed during harvest, and a chance to enjoy the natural environment. As well as tasting some high quality gastronomic products.
Pick up the species that you know and the quantity you wish to consume.
It is prohibited to disrupt the ground.
Only collect whole mushrooms and cover the hole you make, as this will help protect the mycelium.
Do not destroy mushrooms you do not know or which are not edible.
Do not pick overripe mushrooms, they are indigestible. Let the young ones grow then pick them!
Do not gather mushrooms in contaminated areas or areas next to roads, as they can accumulate heavy metals.
The mushroom container allows for ventilation. Do not use plastic bags.
The mushrooms should be cleaned and stored face down as not to stain the hymenophore.
If you have the slightest doubt, do not eat the mushrooms you collected. They can cause death!
If physiological changes occur go to the nearest emergency department. Take with you an example of the mushroom that you ate.
