Other products are still in development, but drug company executives are optimistic.

The near-epidemic level of female sexual dysfunction routinely cited by drug companies is the subject of roiling debate among sex therapists, urologists and feminists. Some feminists, such as sex therapist Leonore Tiefer, argue that drug companies and the researchers they fund are ma

As a matter of fact, I recall mushroom gathering with my family when I was 5 or 6, and we found some mushrooms sizing 15-25cm in diameter. I was kinda bummed for such huge mushrooms filled the buckets too fast and got the fun out of the whole hunting/gathering process and it meant I had to go home earlier than expected… :(

No, nothing to do with Chernobyl. I found mine in South Western Siberia. Mushrooms can reach unusually large sizes. It’s rare but not impossible.

Where I come from all of our indigenous mushrooms contain psilocybin so I hunt for them a good portion of the year.

In Poland u can search many kind of mushrooms for example boletus edulis its most popular.

100g dried boletus edulis – 50pln it’s 10 pounds.

1kg’s fresh boletus ~~ – 20/30 pln.

(Kruszyniany, small village near Belarus border is the best for huntings mushrooms XD)

Mostly immigrants gather mushrooms over here, though there are some micological societies e.g. http://www.wildmushrooms.org/

As for me I really enjoy mushroom hunting. I found my first porchini/белый гриб/ in this season last weekend somewhere on Oregon coast, it was really good :).

I generally only pick the following kinds of mushrooms:
Boletus edulis – белые грибы
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porcini

Cantharellus – лисички
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cantharellus

Hedgehog mushroom – no russian name

You could get a good deal on fresh porcini in some farmers markets, but they are hard to come by and you must really know how to haggle.

I actually prefer to the whole experience of hunting for fungi, even more then actually eating them. I get tremendous amount of satisfaction finding mushrooms. I guess its the notion of self sufficiency and general excitement of finding a fine specimen. From September to the end of November, I just have to spend my sunday mornings in the woods :)

It’s a lot of fun. I remember watching Hells Kitchen with Marco Pierre White. He used fresh and very very nice porcini mushrooms. I’ve never been to UK, but i’m guessing porcini must be quite expensive.

The big mushrooms are boletus edulis. There quite a few of them in UK this time of year. I normally go to the nearest woods on sundays and get at least three of four and at least a dozen of “Birch Bolete”. Its also quite handy that Brits are not great lovers of wild mushrooms ;)

Do you normally gather or buy mushrooms?

Now compare the stalks of Leccinum scabrum (birch bolete) with Porcini stalks. Leccinum scabrum stalks are rough and porcini is smooth.

What you call “podberezoviki” are Birch bolete. They have red top and if you cut them that area turn black or blue very fast. Porcini or boletus edulis or belij grib will never discolor it will stay white even after you boil it, dry it or fry it. That is the reason why Russians call it white mushroom. Look at fifth photo. It has been cut in half and it has slight tinge of red in it’s meat. Not because it’s discolored – it’s natural because it’s so old. In the very first photo you see bunch of Birch boletes and one normal size porcini mushroom on the very left. The very big mushroom is definitely a porcini mushroom. It is old and might not be good for consumption. Nevertheless it is quite rare to see such big and nice porcini mushroom.

They are not “Porcini”, but are similar. Porcini are called “Beliy Grib” or “White Mushroom”.

Aren’t there such mushrooms in north US-states ?

It’s popular and rather noble kinds of mushrooms in continental Europe (as I know rather except British/Irish or Islandia islands) and probably in all heater parts of Siberia.
The smaller ones (kozak in Polish ) are little more noble kind as the big one (podgrzybek).

The plastic bag in the 3rd photo comes from a supermarket in Italy.

Then full motto is “Sa cosa voglio”, translated as “Knows what I want”.
