Mushroom stew

Method:

1. Rinse the mushrooms and slice them into small pieces or thin slices. 

2. Finely chop the onion.

3. Fry the mushroom and onion in butter in a pan until golden brown. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add créme fraîche or cream. Allow the sauce to boil for a few minutes before adding chopped thyme to taste. Add water if the sauce becomes too thick.

Enjoy!

In Norway, autumn is hunting and harvest season, which means that fields and forests are chock-full of fresh fruits and berries, and, of course, mushrooms.

Allemannsretten (the right to roam), gives you free access to the countryside, which includes the opportunity to pick these tasty treats, as long as you show consideration and care for nature and property.

If you haven't been foraging for mushrooms before, remember to always go with a guide, so you know you picked the right ones!

You can also buy fresh mushrooms when they are in season.
