a basketful of mushrooms

Bountiful Mushrooms

This week’s post is brought to you thanks to a huge box full of button mushrooms that a friend at work brought in last week.

As mentioned before, I have a hard time saying no to fresh (not to mention free!) produce no matter what it is, so home I came armed with a large bag and plenty of ideas for making the most of the complimentary fare.

I’ve always loved mushrooms in any variety, shape or form, with their delicate gills and intricate construction.

Each is like a tiny little piece of beautiful architecture, crafted from nothing by nature.

Shooting these photos, I wanted to highlight those interesting features and capture their earthiness.
