amethyst deceiver

[English] plural amethyst deceivers

The amethyst deceiver is a very small, aptly named, delicate woodland mushroom with a gummy texture and mild flavour. It is found from late summer to early winter. The stem and cap are lilac-coloured. It can be cooked with other mushrooms in a mixed mushroom stew or served as a garnish to other dishes. (If gathering mushrooms you must be absolutely certain what you have before you eat them as many are very poisonous.)
