Autumnal leanings

This evening I am making chutney from the pears and apples that we have harvested from the trees around Pissou. I LOVE chutney so am making double quantity :-) Too late, we also discovered a plum tree today - we found half a dozen sweet, juicy, sticky plums that were edible but the others had all gone over which is a real pity as they were a real treat.

We had a brief run up to the Cap de Campets above the Col de Portel earlier and stumbled upon some field mushrooms and also pavement mushrooms along the route forestière which have been included in a rather delicious Italian pasta dish tonight. Tomorrow, if it isn't raining, we will hopefully harvest some more chanterelles if nobody has got there before us!
