  1. My husband found some really fresh ones and we sauteed them for the first time. I thought they were good. Added some brown sugar to some. That was interesting.
  2. There's a debate every year about the false morels. People in Missouri say that Gyromitra caroliniana does not contain any toxin. I know a lot of people have eaten them for many years but I'll pass. The grey/yellows should be coming up this week. A lot being found in Wayne county. Soil temp is good but they could take awhile to grow with cold temps this weekend.
  3. The black ones should be out at my place this week. I found a few under black cherry trees, but the trees are only 8 inches in diameter. I assume as the trees grow they will produce more.
  4. Nice bolete! Are the ones in the first pic angel wings, Pleurocybella porrigens?
  5. I found Pleurotus ostreatus and Phyllotopsis nidulans on the same log, which seems unusual to me. They were too far apart to get in a pic. Ended up with a couple pounds of prime oysters.
  6. I pulled this back up in case anyone wants to make this for New Year's. I made some using 2 1/2 teaspoons trumpet powder and 2 blocks of cream cheese.
  7. Wow that's a lot of spores. Never seen them like that before.
  8. Looks like it to me. Might be mature in a couple days.
  9. I would never eat any mushroom based on what someone else says. Make sure you have 100% positive identification first. Since you said these have grey gills, I 'think' they are Hypholoma species.
  10. I had a good year here picking 8 in their prime. Double what I had two years ago. Learned a lot about the way they grow.
  11. I found more older ones by dead trees with the bark falling off. I'm going to make a debris pile with layers of mushrooms and spore prints. Wish I would've found these places a month ago but I hit my goal of finding some to try.
  12. Our Aldi stocks fresh Giorgio mushrooms from Pennsylvania. Sometimes as little as $ .79 per carton. We don't have Lidl in this area. I wonder where those were picked?
  13. I was so happy I finally found a lot of blewits around a fallen tree. Unfortunately most were past prime but I found a few lavender ones to cook. They were delicious. Hoping to pick more next weekend.
  14. Wow! Was it near a waterway? Or some odd microclimate I guess.
