i wish there were more edible mushrooms in my area, i am trying to get more foraging knowledge but since i can’t/won’t drive and live in the city it’s hard to get the experience. tried some nasturtium leaves since they are apparently edible and they taste nasty! there is a spicy aftertaste which seems like it could be interesting. maybe cooking it would remove the nasty flavor.

the flowers apparently taste better so i will go out into the garden and try. they also grow wild a lot where i live.

Yes--and mushrooms gather up more pollution too, so it might be hard to find good ones. I have heard of stropharia being common in wood chips though; that shouldn't be bad. Nasturtium flowers are spicy too but I don't dislike them. That said I wouldn't go out of my way for them.

I also deal with overly strong flavours by turning whatever offensive vegetable into a pesto with many other wild herbs and vegetables, plus sunflower seeds (no pine nuts here!) It is still spicy, but in a good way.
