The ring and the cap.

Here in our province, mushrooms are locally called "uong" and they are on its season. Mushrooms is easy to cook, mostly in local dish we call "dinengdeng", or adobo and they have a sweet taste. They have health benefits too, they are rich in vitamins and minerals and dietary fiber. But how do we know that what we eat are safe? What locals here are selling to us are safe, they have the eyes to see which one, and we were told about mushrooms that has rings are the one that are poisonous. And with google, i found out about the red on the cap or the stem are poisonous. The safe ones have a spongy pores(like the one on the photo from my previous discussion) and mostly they grow on woods. Eating poisonous ones are toxic and deadly, i am glad that locals here knew their mushrooms well. And selling us with a "good price". Or basic knowledge with the ring and the cap on the mushrooms.

I would be unable to pick mushrooms in the Philippines as they are certainly not the same than in France. One of the best mushrooms that can be picked in August here is the Amanita Caesarea which is orange/red. The name "Caesarea" has been given because it was a mushroom served to Roman emperors.
