About Me

Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 8 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/08/modern-mushroom-growing-2020-harvesting.html

Silver Mushrooms

 Sure, being immersed into MUSHROOMS there has to be a SILVER ONE!
This is my personal collection on a Le Jacquard Français placemat...
Gold plated silver earrings in the shape of a mushroom; a silver charm with its lamellae beautifully worked in and a silver plated salt & pepper set.
Uploaded by the ISMS from the Mushroom Journal September 1978 ←(click link) is this on page 292
A solid silver mushroom charm, specially designed for the MGA (Mushroom Growers' Association) in connection with the Woman's Own competition. 
Silver-plated salt and pepper pots are also included.
The charm weighs a quarter of an ounce.
Placed these silver mushroom treasures on top of two lovely Mushroom Cookbooks
To the left you find The Mushroom Cookbook ←click link
A bit closer for showing these treasures...
Again a different angle
Showing the top of the silver charm, with its ring for allowing the necklace to go through
Detail of the made in Italy Salt & Pepper set
And once more now with the silver charm being turned around...

Do any of you have Silver Mushrooms?

  3. I don't have silver mushrooms. But whenever we have Campbell's mushroom soup we think of you and your dedication to work.

    God bless.

  5. They're all lovely, Mariette, and best of all, not something you'd see others wearing (the earrings and charm, obviously). I do like unique, or at least unusual, jewelry!

  13. I have to say no to that Mariette but I would love the silver salt and pepper set, do you use them everyday, I would 💜 Do you have a favourite mushroom recipe that you could share with us?

    1. Dearest Grace,
      Since Pieter's open heart surgery we both have not been 'adding' salt to our food, so the salt and pepper sets are mostly idle. We live on a low salt diet.
      As for mushroom recipes, you can check my Pinterest and my favorite recipe Risotto met Paddestoelen is in Dutch... https://www.pinterest.com/mariettesbackto/mushrooms-champignons-champi%C3%B1ones/mushroom-recipes/
