Wild mushrooms soup

.

My girlfriend and I are enthusiast mushroom hunters. The harvest this fall has been quite good and after badly cooking a big amount of mushrooms (too much mushrooms in a single pan and the stupid addition of sugar) I decided to make a soup in an attempt to salvage the fabulous taste of these mushrroms (Blewits, Canaris, Porcinis, black trumpets, oyster mushrooms...).

This soup isn't great... it is still too sweet and the herbs I added blended badly with the flavour of the other ingredients.... but with a bit of sour cream, it becomes a bit more palatable.

Hey, seems you never changed the blue table cloth.

I normally love mushroom soups, but somehow this time the soup has a very unpleasant and strong earthy smell.Is it because there are too many kinds mixed together?

About the table cloth... as you know... we don't have tons of them... and I'm lazy anyway! ;-)

About the mushroom soup... to be honest, I don't know exactly why the soup turned out this way. My guess is that the herbs I used clashed with the mushrooms and especially the sugar (which I dropped by accident in the mushrooms while sauteing them). I'm also guessing that the canaris (tricholoma flavovirens) added a lot of that earthyness you mentioned. For now however, these are only hypothesis.
