    way better than bland store bought Mushrooms.

    Do any of you forage for wild edibles ? it's a great hobby to go along with relic hunting .
    Good job! I haven't found any of these here on the west coast yet but hopefully this year I will get the chance. When it gets too wet to go prospecting then I'll be transitioning to mushroom hunting. Actually found some chicken of the woods the other day while out prospecting. Too bad they were just barely a little too old.

    the chicken of the woods is what I was looking for when I found the trumpets . I have to stop and look about to see them , if walking I miss them most of the time as they blend in real well. good luck on your hunts.

    Actually the outter edges of those would have been just fine! chicken of the woods is one that regardless of how old(to an extent of not being rotten) the new growth on the edges is almost always good. next time jut harvest the outer 2 inches or so.

    I usually just harvest the tender outer parts. They’re my favorite, even more so than morels. My wife prefers morels.

    Only if you count picking up acorns for my neighborhood squirrels. I freeze them until November or so and the start tossing them into the yard.

    Acorns are very bitter but squirrels taste great.

    For sure the best part! only had morels a few times, so far my fav is smooth chanterelles that grow on my land near all the beech trees. fry em up in garlic and butter and throw them on a burger and it will put most food establishments to shame!

    I went out mushroom hunting and the mosquitoes ate thru a layer of deep woods off and two shirts to get to this sweet body of mine .
    I found a few hundred Black Trumpets and one Indigo milk cap. one of the few natural blue foods provided by nature.

    I dehydrated the trumpets and will use them in stir fry and soups at a later date. I ate the Indigo with my lunch.
