Few things can make a gnome get a rumbly in his tumbly faster than the smell of fresh mushrooms sauteing in a frying pan. Axle thinks Britta should add mushrooms to just about everything she makes. Because Britta shares his love for mushrooms, she’s willing to cook them as long as he collects them. Of course, occasionally she has to put her foot down and say no to his gastronomic suggestions. Like the time Axel insisted she put mushrooms in their berry pudding! Preposterous!
There is definitely a skill to mushroom hunting, a skill handed down from generation to generation. Knowing where to look, and being able to distinguish the edibles from the poisonous varieties is an important ability. Axel is the Thicket’s expert on mushrooms, and because of that, it is his duty to take the young folk out into the woods, and teach them how to hunt mushrooms safely. It is definitely a skill worth learning, as any gnome’s tummy well tell you!
Making mushrooms for your gnomes is easy peasy. Make 1 or make dozens. All will be appreciated by your gnome friends.
