Mushrooms have long been regarded all over the world as the
most delectable and succulent of foods. Their peculiarly delicate
flavor charmed the luxury-loving Roman aristocrats more than
twenty centuries ago, as it charms all civilized folk today. But
most of us do not realize that the mushrooms we buy at the grocery
store, either fresh or in cans, represent only one of the many
edible kinds and that countless others make equally delightful
eating. For edible mushrooms are to be found every where — in
front yards, on shade trees, in parks, fields, and forests.
