  • The ideal container for mushrooms - a wicker basket, for berries - a shuck from a shingle.
  • A compass and preferably a map of the terrain.
  • Mushroom knife. Mushroom is best cut off at the root, but if you forget the knife, you can gently turn out of the mycelium.
  • Waterproof shoes, replaceable warm socks.
  • Provision, matches (do not fall forest!).
  • Insect repellent.
  • On the spot, find a meter stick. With its help, it's easier to look for mushrooms, hidden under leaves, needles and moss.

  • Collect only those mushrooms that you know for sure that they are edible . Plate mushrooms, especially russules, try to cut with a foot to make sure that it does not have a ringy ring. Remember that among the plate-shaped edible mushrooms, such a ring has only anawks, champignons and an umbrella mushroom variegated.
  • It is better to collect spongy mushrooms , for example white, - in our latitudes they are difficult to poison.
  • Cutting mushrooms, pay attention to the color of the plates - it should be from pink-white to brown-brown, but in no case not white.
  • Pick mushrooms in the morning . At this time they are fresh, strong and better preserved.
  • Carry russules and mushrooms separately from other mushrooms: they are especially fragile.
  • When you arrive home, immediately process your harvest. Otherwise, in the morning you will have to throw out most of it.
  • Do not eat raw mushrooms.
  • Before cooking, discard the old, wormy and suspicious. Rinse the remaining thoroughly. Regardless of what you will cook, boil the mushrooms in salted water for 10-15 minutes.

Mrichnik is mistaken only once! According to the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, in the current year, as of May 23, 2016, 4 cases of fungal poisoning have been registered in the Kyiv region - in Brovary (1 issue), Borispol (1 issue) and Vasilkivsky (2 vyp.) Districts, of them, three cases among children in May of this year. Analysis of recorded cases of fungal poisoning in Ukraine indicates that most of them are caused by the use of plateted poisonous fungi (primarily pale toadstool), which are mistaken for edible mushrooms and russules. They are also poisoned by fly agarics, false apices, raincoats and champignons. But most of the tragedies, according to the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, are associated with ignorance of the rules for collecting, storing and cooking mushrooms.

And on September 5, 2005, 191 cases of poisoning with inedible mushrooms (39 injured children) were registered in Ukraine, 17 people (of them six children) died. It is interesting that over the same period of 2004, there were almost four times more poisoned people: 497 cases, 75 people died! The Kiev region is one of the last places in the country by the number of poisonings (7 poisoned have been registered to date), but neighboring Sumskaya each year on leading roles: this year nearly 30 people were poisoned there.

So remember:

  1. if you feel unwell, seek medical advice immediately, and before washing, rinse the stomach with a weak saline solution;
  2. children under the age of nine mushrooms are contraindicated;
  3. mushrooms, bought in a store or in stationary markets, can not be poisonous;
  4. almost every edible mushroom has a poisonous double, and inedible mushrooms in nature are much more than edible!

By the way


In the forests of the Kiev region snakes, especially vipers, are increasingly encountered. This is due, first of all, to warming: creeping creeps slowly creep north.

In order not to become a victim of a viper, wear strong, preferably leather shoes. In the woods, always go with a stick, in order to drive away the snake at the right time. Look at both!

Vipers are dark gray and almost black in color, ranging from half a meter to a meter. If the snake has two yellow spots on the top of the head, then that's before you. Do not offend him, he is not poisonous and will not harm you. If the snake is brown or dirty-yellow, then it is not a snake, but a legless lizard of skids. It is also safe.

And, of course, beware of wild animals. In the woods you may inadvertently meet an elk or a wild boar. After seeing the moose, wait a little while and quietly leave. Remember, sudden movements are not recommended! A plunge into a wild boar or a sow, climb faster on a tree and make yourself comfortable. If you do not like wild guinea pigs, you will have to stay with the squirrels for a long time. True, there is a plus - you can see the program "In the world of animals" in Kiev from the first row.
