It is that period of time: wild mushrooms. We take our family and go foraging wild mushrooms. We get them prepared for the winter or cooking them for now. I don’t like very much to eat this mushrooms but I love foraging them. Actually I love foraging all wild mushrooms.
Spending time in nature and getting your food is a great way to teach your kids about nature, food, animals, etc.
Honey fungus in our country are named “ghebe, pipinci or popici” depending the area.
- 1 root parsnip
- 1 root celery
- 2 onions

- 1 parsley
- 2 carrots
- 1 red pepper
- 1 liter borscht
- 1 hand green parsley
- 1 hand chopped white cabbage
- 2 hands Armillaria mellea mushrooms – honey fungus
Clean and cut all the vegetables and boil them in 2 liters of water for 30 minutes. Clean the mushrooms very good, cut them in pieces and add them to the vegetables with the broth. Boil them for another 30 minutes.
Boil the borsch and then add it to the mushrooms. Before finishing add the green parsley.

Although the name is funny, the soup looks delicious, and the back story is nice! I’m sure the family enjoyed the outing.
They always do.

We do not call it borscht if it does not have beets! Just saying 🙂 (this is an infamous “borscht holy war” :))
It’s just one mushroom borscht. But I see where you’re coming from
In Romanian we are calling borscht = a sour soup even without beets
I see! To give you a context:

I love every type of mushroom I’ve ever tried.
It’s great that this recipe uses parsnips. It is seldom seen in recipes and yet it is so tasty. I’ve even grown them in my own garden too!
You have a very cool website. Compliments!
Ugh I wish I could eat honey fungus. They make me quite ill, which is annoying because I LOVE mushrooms but can only eat a very limited variety of them.
Sorry to hear that.
