Latin name: Marasmius oreades
The Fairy Ring Mushroom is a small wild mushroom which appears in the summer and autumn. It can be found along verges, in wood margins, grassland, fields and heaths. It often grows in large numbers and in mysterious fairy rings.
The Fairy Ring mushroom has a brownish-yellow umbrella-shaped cap and a shortish, creamy white stem.
Flavour and use
The Fairy Ring Mushroom has a striking smell and flavour for such a small mushroom. It has an even more intense aroma when dried. You can prepare and use Fairy Ring Mushrooms in the same way as Chanterelles.
