PICKING MUSHROOMS

PICKING MUSHROOMS

This is something very important, everyone does it here. Latvian girls sometimes choose their husbands this way – the best mushroom pickers get the best fiancés. Seriously, it’s a very nice thing to do in late summer or autumn. You spend hours in a forest hunting for their brown, shiny heads. It’s like gambling only in nature. When the work is done you get rewarded with a home-made mushroom sauce, served with potatoes and meat. Don’t miss this.
