Tasty Facts

– About 2500 species of mushrooms belong to the family of ordinary mushrooms. Mushrooms are called “rows” because they grow very crowded, most often in rows. The most widespread are gray rows (in some areas they are called “mice” or “series”), and purple rows.

– Ryadovki are not very well-known edible agaric mushrooms, although among them there are both inedible and slightly poisonous ones. There are gray (smoky), yellow-red, purple, poplar, silver, open-shaped, golden and many others. All these mushrooms differ from each other in the color of their caps and this is their main difference. Basically, the cap of the mushroom is 4-10 cm in diameter, the surface is dry, in the middle of the cap there is a small tubercle, the thin edges of the caps are bent down. The stem of the mushroom is up to 8 cm high, with a velvety-fibrous surface. The pulp of the fungus is with a purple tint.

– Wednesday rows – temperate zone of the Northern Hemisphere. These mushrooms grow in coniferous and mixed forests, prefer sandy soil under moss or deciduous-coniferous layer, sometimes a family of rows chooses rotten pine stumps. In urban conditions, rows grow in gardens and parks.

– The purple row can be confused with the inedible poisonous mushroom “cobweb” “of the same purple color. These mushrooms can be distinguished by a thin “cobweb veil” that envelops the plates under the hat of the poisonous cobweb.

– The season for collecting rows begins in mid-September and continues until the end of October, until the first frost.

– Before any cooking method, these mushrooms must be boiled for 20 minutes.

– Tasting raw mushrooms is not recommended, it can cause indigestion.

– You can also boil frozen rows that have departed from frost, while they must also be thoroughly cleaned beforehand.

– Boiled rows can be used to prepare various dishes: salads, soups, sauces and casseroles. Pre-boiled rows can be fried, stewed, pickled, salted or frozen for future use.

– Boiled or fried rows are a great side dish for omelettes or meat dishes.

– It is better to salt the rows in the fall, since the mushrooms of the autumn collection have a denser and more crunchy pulp after salting. For salting, you should choose small-sized rows – they are tastier salty, while large mushrooms become tougher.
