Wood Blewit Mushroom
The Wood Blewit, pronounced "blue-it", is a cold weather species native to North America and Europe, often found in the woods in the fall and winter. It is a robust, bluish-lilac colored mushroom with a classic pancake cap and sturdy stem that's swollen at the base. Its flavor is earthy and slightly yeasty. It has a long, cool weather fruiting season, from September until freeze up. Wood blewits have a very distinctive odor, which has been likened by one author to that of frozen orange juice. Wood blewits are generally regarded as a good edible, but they are known to cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. This is particularly likely if the mushroom is consumed raw, though allergic reactions are known even from cooked blewits. It is therefore important to test a small sample for any adverse reactions before adding it to your diet.
