aniseed funnel (cap) mushroom

[English] plural aniseed funnel (cap) mushrooms

The aniseed fullen cap mushroom has a distincive pale blue colour of young specimens soon fading towards light grey. A couple of these will impart an almost liquorice flavour to a dish. Certainly not many are required but is a food addition to soups and stews. (If gathering mushrooms you must be absolutely certain what you have before you eat them as many are very poisonous.)
