Excerpt from Mushrooms and Their Cultivation: A Handbook for the Amateurs Dealing With the Culture of Mushrooms in the Open-Air, Also in Sheds, Cellars, Greenhouses, and the Best Methods of Cooking Them; Including a Description of Other Edible Fungi

This handbook has been written to meet the requirements of amateur gardeners who need guidance as to the various methods of growing mushrooms for home consumption. Our aim has been to supply information in as concise and lucid a manner as possible on the culture of the mushroom on ridges or beds in the open air, in boxes and tubs in cellars, etc.; under greenhouse staging; in old hotbeds or in frames; also in pastures. No pains have been spared to make every phase of the art plain and easy to understand, in order that even the merest novice may follow with hope of certain success.

To render the volume of still greater value to the amateur we have not only instructed him how to grow mushrooms, but also how to cook them in various appetising ways. There is no vegetable so delicious as the mushroom, if properly cooked; and if the reader will only prepare the produce according to one of the recipes given, he will appreciate it to a far greater extent than he has hitherto done.
