Found a great bunch of Shaggy mains on my way home. Oh so good.
Bears head tooth
Scored on a rainy day walk today!
Nice big wine caps coming up. They have a different taste really good with lemon pepper not real good with garlic. Take while to cool down, very wet. Purple laccaria coming up too
Lots of rooted mushrooms today, might be time to make hot and sour soup. Really long roots.
Rain at last
It finally rained, Todays walk
Score found huge cauliflower mushroom. So good! Little hard to clean.
Oyster mushrooms are out. And I picked a Dryad Saddle too. I breaded and baked them with some fresh Ramps. The oysters are always great but is still can’t get the Dryad Saddles to taste good.
Spring inky caps
Inky caps are up. One of my favorite mushrooms, Inky’s are one of the first mushrooms up in my area and I look for them when the fiddle heads start to end. They decompose in a few hours so you really will not get to try them unless you forage them. They do have a somewhat poisonous lookalike called the alcohol inky. It reacts with alcohol and you get to vomit for 24 hours. So … don’t mess up. Anyway I like them sautéed in butter with ramps sail and pepper. Then served on bruschetta and with a saintly blue cheese.
