Pale-footed horsehair lichen, Bryoria Fuscescens in Latin, Manlav in Swedish.
This dark-colored moss grows on pine trees and must not be mistaken for another lighter-colored moss of greyish-green hue which grows on Christmas trees and birch trees, is poisonous and called Garlav in Swedish.
This soup has a subtle taste recalling that of the artichoke.
Clean away pine needles, pieces of leaves, etc. . .
Boil it 3 times in 3 different waters, throw water away each time. Cut up in small bits or preferably use a mixer, add water with bouillon cube, then add cream and spices.
