Mushrooms!
« on: August 19, 2017, 09:04:11 am »
 I was visiting some relatives down the road from us and we got on the topic of mushrooms since we have been getting some rain and mild weather and they mentioned a mushroom they seen while checking fences. We went back there and checked it out and I first thought it was a young "hen of the woods" (maitake) but being a much lighter color we figured out it probably was what I believe to be a "Cauliflower mushroom". It was growing at the base of an oak tree.



 We also found a few Chanterelles and a patch of small Oyster mushrooms on a dead stump. I'm going to check on the Oysters in a day or two and see if they mature. We went ahead and sampled the Cauliflower mushroom, it was worth picking. Tasted good sauted in butter along with the Chanterelles.


 I'll post up more pics of mushrooms I find. If anyone else hunts and eats wild mushrooms, feel free to post up what you find.

  And anyone else reading this, make sure you 100% positively ID an edible mushroom with a reputable source before consuming. There are poisonous look-alikes of many edible mushrooms. I only eat the ones that I know for sure won't make me sick  ;)

 I found a nice patch of oyster mushrooms today but they were a little too far gone. I did find a few in condition later.

 Here's what I believe to be a "Bearded Tooth" mushroom (or a close relative in the Hericium family) I found starting in a pile of old firewood today. Im going to be keeping an eye on it, it will make a good meal once it matures  :). I like these  sliced and sauted in butter. They're good eaten sauted by themselves or added to spaghetti. They like to be cooked slow over low heat or they tend get a little tough.

Unfortunately i have only ever experienced the morels for picking and consuming of wild mushrooms. I know that I have several more varieties that are edible in my area but have never learned to safely and positively identify other varieties. Maybe its time I do some studying  :P so I can safely try a late summer / fall variety this season.
