    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 .

    When I was a kid my dad would take us out to gather mushrooms. They were delicious.

    I do, but only ones where there’s no chance that I could mis-identify the species. I don’t want to be in line for a liver transplant so I stick with morels, chanterelles, and chicken of the woods.

    Kindest regards,

    Those are all great easy to identify mushrooms Kantuckeean, look into the black trumpet , nothing else looks anything like it and they taste great. but they are hard to find as they blend into the forest floor so well. look for areas with oaks and moss .
    Man I hear ya about the heath risk and stick to the ones you've listed . I just found a few hundred Chanterelles but they're too small still to pick.

    yes I love looking for mushrooms, and we have all sorts of wild leeks/ramps. Unfortunately it has been super dry this year, like drought status, and none of the chanterelles grew on my land.

    I enjoy picking Morels, Pheasant Backs (Hawks wings) and Hen of the woods (Sheeps head) mushrooms. On the fruit side, I pick wild Mulberries and Blackberries.

    I like my mushrooms processed through the stomachs of deer, turkeys and squirrels.

    Yes, I hunt the King Bolete, Matsutake and Chanterelle mushrooms out here in the northwest. Truly a treasure all their own.

    What is this thing you call “rain”?

    I like eating morels but don’t have much luck finding them.

    I pick around 20 different mushrooms, some for the pleasure of eating and some for their medicinal value. It's about time for an explosion of Shaggy Manes to pop up just across the road from me. Yum!

    man that sounds good, I'm only up to 5 types so far , sticking with the easy ones . If only I had the knowledge of the American Indians that once roamed this land , everything a man needs is eat well and be well is right under our feet.
