I just though I'd take a moment to gloat over (err... 'share') some of my primo finds today. I know there are more important things going on in this sub-forum. I'll put my other finds in the 'woods walk' thread under the woodland sub-forum.

Oh for smell-o-vision. Some day. Until then enjoy with your eyes!

Slightly worse for wear after a long hike rubbing in a wet paper bag crammed into a backpack. Proof you can be glutinous without being greedy (I left way more than I picked)


Finally. and I must stress this.

NEVER eat a mushroom unless you are dead sure what it is or else you may end up dead

We took a walk in the woods today and the Chantrels are definately out. Ours are Orange. Also spotted a few Lobster mushrooms. Guess what I'm doing tomorrow?

If I get REAL lucky on a mushroom hunt, I can come back with a red chantrelle that might weigh a gram.

@Adam

I live in the Puget Trough - these are in a Doug Fir patch of Land which was logged out about 90 years ago.

Exactly!, Last year we had none. I was worried they had all died off from lack of rain. This year we had early rains, and they are back in abundance. They do like to grow under the huckleberry bushes growing under the Doug Firs.

I also got three pounds of Lobster Mushrooms. It was the first time I have tried them. Fairly bland but meaty, wonderful color, would be great on a burger.

Well, the chances are 70% fine, 25% puking and only 5% dead...

Oops, experience, I'm sorry... Had that only once, fortunately. Of course, I'm also in favor of knowing a mushroom very well, before eating it. The statistics doesn't help, when there is a very toxic one growing in abundance in an area... But knowledge helps, so I think it's good to keep the entry barrier low.
