Ink Cap

Black drawing ink used to be made from this
mushroom  by boiling the black 'ink' from the cap
 with a small amount of  water and cloves.

  1. I never knew that ink was made from mushroom caps. I guess you wouldn't want to taste it at all.

    Thanks for the comment on my Banff post. Yes, there is a train that goes through the mountains. I've never taken it, but I hear it is very beautiful. It's gorgeous by car, too.

  3. Very interesting - I like that idea better than squeezing it out of squids ;-)
