What to take with you, going to the forest
- The ideal container for mushrooms - a wicker basket, for berries - a basket of shingles.
- 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 is easier to search 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 leg to make sure that it does not have a ringy ring. Remember that among the plate-shaped edible mushrooms, such a ring is only available, mushrooms and a mushroom umbrella are 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 by no means 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, in the Kyiv region, 4 cases of fungal poisoning have been registered - in Brovary (1 v.), Boryspil (1 vy.) And Vasilkivsky (2 vyp.) Regions, Of them, three cases among children in May of this year. Analysis of recorded cases of poisoning with fungi 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 related to ignorance of the rules for collecting, storing and cooking mushrooms.
And on September 5, 2005, 191 cases of poisoning with inedible mushrooms were registered in Ukraine (39 children were affected), 17 people died (six of them were children). 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 every year on leading roles: this year about 30 people have already been poisoned there.
- If you feel unwell, seek medical advice immediately, and before washing, rinse the stomach with a weak saline solution;
- Children under the age of nine mushrooms are contraindicated;
- Mushrooms, bought in a store or in stationary markets, can not be poisonous;
- 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: crawling 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, it means that it'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 sow, climb faster on a tree and make yourself comfortable. If you do not like the wild pigs, you will have to stay with the squirrels for a long time in the company. True, there is a plus - you can see the program "In the world of animals" in Kiev, from the first row.
