It's Called Manifesting, Look It Up

It may look like I'm cooking homegrown mushrooms, but I'm actually manifesting an empire. I've got a lot of dreams here at Forest Lane of expanding this hand-dyed yarn business into an empire. From a one-person operation to a bustling yarn metropolis, complete with a team of dyers, sewists, and even a woolen and textile mill... And maybe diving into the realm of fiber arts patterns via a book a book highlighting Forest Lane yarn. This might be fueled by a touch of wool-induced madness, but if you want to get to know me better here's what's swirling around my head!

Red Winecap Mushroom Spawn

 I spread the sawdust in my woodchips in the fall. I just removed the bug-eaten parts of these mushrooms, rinsed them, patted them dry, and popped them in the oven on warm for a few minutes to dry them faster. I chopped them up, cooked them in butter, and added salt, pepper, and garlic powder. They taste a bit like asparagus, but aren't super flavorful, so they could easily be used to bulk up something like chili that has a lot of flavor without making it taste like mushrooms.
