Still thinking about foraging for mushrooms? It’s not too late! Winter Chanterelles are a well known and safe mushroom to lookout for in and around Victoria this time of year. These tasty mushrooms can be found throughout most of the winter. They look similar to fall chanterelles but are smaller with a hollow stem.
Gather is a local business that provides workshops and events on crafting delicious treats with seasonal wild food found in Victoria and area. They also sell hand crafted edible products. If you are looking for some creative holiday gift ideas or food related winter activities check out their upcoming workshop on Herbal Skin Care and Wild Cookery
