Giant Destroying Angel

It seems like the edible boletes have run their course and left only ones I don’t recognise, or poisonous types, in their wake. Death caps and Destroying Angels abound at the moment

Published by Carpathian Adventure

My name is Edward O'Toole and I live in one of the wildest, most beautiful parts of Europe, in the Carpathian Mountains of Eastern Slovakia. Life is an adventure - both physically and metaphysically... I've been living out here for the last 22 years, along with my wife, 3 kids and Jack Russell. My main interests involve bushcraft, prepping, survival and wilderness living (self-sufficiency and self-reliance), ecological, green, smart and natural solutions, motorcycles and motorbike club life, writing and art (I have 7 published books), and exploring the paranormal.

  1. Looks like it is probably a Field Parasol to me, I have found many in woodlands near me as well as field edges. If so the caps make fabulous eating.

    Dip the whole cap in beaten egg and parmesan then in breadcrumbs and fry.

    All the best.

      1. In that case I bow to your greater knowledge, that is indeed a huge Angel – I should have looked closer at the Volva.

  2. I’m an amateur but the locals are all experts. Oddly, many won’t touch champingnon because of their similarity to young virosa. I stick to a few boletes nowadays. TBH, there just doesn’t seem a reward equal to the risk where fungi is concerned. Each time I think I’ve definitively mastered one I discover that it has similar but toxic clones.
