St. George Mushroom
A mushroom, growing wild in Britain and so called because they generally appear around 23rg April, which is St. George's Day and their season is short. The caps need to be brushed as they can be gritty. They are mild in flavour, so good with chicken and fish, but check them for worm infestation as they're prone to this and keep them in the fridge.
