Amanita Cesarea

The queen of mushrooms: Last Saturday I went out with some friends at the Sierra of Aracena. We were in a lovely town called Almonaster la Real. Our goal was to find Amanita Cesarea (a highly prized mushroom). The day was rainy and cold but that did not matter. In a cork oak forest we found a treasure. There were hundreds of beautiful specimens. They are orange-red. We caught almost 10 kg (and the marketprice now is about 36€/kg). In Huelva the Amanita is known as TANA. It is really a very nice and very tasty mushroom.
