Lepiota rachodes (Vitt.) Quel., Agaricaceae

The Parasol Mushroom is a delectable and highly sought after wild edible mushroom in Europe. Its mild flavor and sophisticated taste makes it best to be used for sauces or sauteed to highlight its superb choice edibility. The stems are discarded. The caps can also be stuffed and baked, or breaded and pan-fried.

Wild edible mushrooms have anti-inflammatory and cholesterol-reducing properties. They enhance the immune system and they assist in reducing blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

We wild-harvest our parasol mushroom from June through October in the wilderness of Northern Saskatchewan.
