Wild Mushrooms

Recommended Posts

  Sorry to be repetitive, and somewhat rambling, but we mushroom folk are somewhat "strange" by most others definitions, and besides, promoting mushroom hunting is what I live to do.

Hey, in your picture, is that a gilled mushroom?

Yes it is. That is Chlorophyllum rhacodes, which used to be Macrolepiota rhacodes. Common name is the shaggy parasol. It is a delicious edible, but one must take care to not confuse it with Chlorophyllum molybdites, the Green Spored Lepiota.

I do agree with the use of dried Boletus edulis the way you described. I also use a coffee grinder to make "mushroom powder" for additions to soups etc.

The Pacific Northwest woods is alive with mushrooms (and breathtaking).

I picked maybe 20 matsutaki buttons today, a bag of hedgehogs and got tired of picking chantrelles. The frost and freeze is coming but right now it is as good as it has been in fouryears.

I've been hunting for mushrooms with limited success. There is a mycological society here that I've been dying to join and they have mushroom hunting parties in the spring and fall. Ummmm, morels.
