  1. Hey all, Just stumbled upon this little guy amongst a grove of oaks I believe (included a picture of the tree and leaves for reference because I have no experience identifying trees). It seemed to be a bit trampled when I found it, but still pretty surprisingly in tact. I say it might be a chanterelle because (well I hope so, for one) my friend had told me he finds them around this spot, and it seems to hold a few notable characteristics, though maybe unripe. This was yesterday afternoon, about 5-7 days after the last rainfall. Interested to see what you think!
  2. I’m just getting started looking for mushrooms, and I found what I believe are chanterelles. Any input would be great. Found about 5 loosely together in almost bare dirt on a hillside with a lot of oaks. Thanks!
  3. Think I found some wild Chantarelles! Just stumbled upon them for the first time, so I'm not 100% certain. Can anyone help me positively identify them?
  4. Found these near a batch of bright, golden chanterelles. Not sure if they or older chanterelles or a different type, just uncertain with ID. Any help? Thanks Dave
  5. I'm fairly sure ive found Chanterelles in my own backyard! Ive never found Chanterelles before, and I'm pretty new to mushrooms and any sort of foraging so I want to be absolutely 100% completely sure theyre not false Chanterelles. As many opinions as I can possibly get!!They're growing along the edge of a large English Ivy patch, all from the soil and not wood. I'm in Georgia. Let me know if any additional info is needed! Furthermore, if they are Chanterelles, should I harvest them now or check in after the next big rain storm (im actually expecting one tonight) to see if they're bigger? Most of my mushroom experience is limited to admiring so sorry if thats a really obvious question
  6. Personally, I like the Black Trumpet mushrooms better than the very popular one - the yellow Chanterelles. In fact, they belong to the same Chanterelle family . Before I got into the wild mushrooms hunting, I often heard of people talked about that the yellow Chanterelles are the best choice of the wild edible mushrooms. When I went to the wild mushroom hunting, I was particularly looking for the yellow chanterelles, and often neglected the black trumpets. Until one day, I saw a big patch of the black trumpets in an oak grove floor. I reluctantly picked some of them and took home. I tried and that was very good! Since then, I stsrted to gather more of the black chanterelle mushrooms. In my experience, the yellow chanterelles are good only when they are young and fresh. When they are old, they become rubbery. You can't dry them, they become rubbery. You can't freeze them either, they become rubbery also. One way to get a better use of it is to fry them with seasonings and butter, then, you can freeze them to store. But, when comes black trumpets, you can dry them, you can freeze them, you can do whatever with them, their flavor are just as good as the fresh pick ones. They are versatile in cooking. Above picture, the right corner one, is an albinal black trumpet, or something else mushroom?
  7. I’ve found cinnabar chanterelles here in central AR and I have a few very small patches of them growing. They are not very big in size. The question I have, how do you know when to harvest them? Some are about the size of a quarter at the biggest and from what I have read on them, they usually don’t get very big.
  8. Hi there, I'm a first time forager who picked up a nice haul of small 1-2" bright orange mushrooms. They appear to have false gills, but I'm wondering if any experts recognize these as chanterelles! Many thanks! Mitch
  9. Walk after work and a nice plate of smooth chanterelle along with a few handfuls of black trumpets. Off to the frying pan.
  10. I never had or heard of Chanterelle mushrooms before, until last Winter my coworkers talked about it. I searched google, saw tons of the pictures. My eyes were well trained to ID the Chanterelle mushrooms by the google Images. I was ready to find some of my own Chanterelle mushrooms when summer came. It was about late Spring, or early Summer, I found my first Chanties. They were so tiny small, but I knew they were Chanties. Back then, I didn't know Chanties need much longer time to grow big than gilled mushrooms can popped out over night . I kept looking for it and looking for it. One day, at a gameland path, my eyeballs almost popped out of my eyesockets ! I saw a big chunck of yellow some sort looked like daylily flower --- Chanterelle mushroom! Then I saw another one, another one... The whole hill, the whole path, they were everywhere! Can you imagine how exciting I was! I started to pick with trembling hands. I wasn't sure that was a dream or reality. I dreamed a lot. Many times I mixed up my childhood dreams with the real life stories. So I picked a basketful of my good Chanties went to my car trunk, that was true. Then, I picked another basketful. It was nearly sunset, getting darker and darker. I had to go home. They were too old, taste rubbery. The Spring young ones are very tasty.
  11. My dad and I found so many of these tonight. We left much more than we took as well, as it is a public space and others might stumble upon them (also so they can spore). They grew for the most part under beech and maple, usually on slopes which were grassy with little else as far as vegetation. I think they're all the same. They seem to smell sweet and fruity (I can see why they say apricots but the smell also reminds me of earwigs if you have ever smelled them) the lighting makes them look less orange but they have an orange tint.
  12. I found these all around near the other chanterelles. They were usually closer to a stream and on moss in a hemlock/maple/beech mixed forest. I had some cinnabar chanterelles last year from here and I think they're the same but I'm going to ask just in case. Thanks for any help! Andy
  13. Hi All, I found this patch of small red and orange mushrooms today but I am not positive they are chanterelles. Can someone please confirm? I know that golden chanterelles have false gills that fork, but on these mushrooms there is minimal forking, except near the cap, at least to my novice eye. Do the red chanterelles fork less than other chanterelles? Thank you!!
  14. Found near Mt Si in North Bend. Also saw what I believe were White Chanterelle nearby.
  15. Found Today in mixed growth of trees in Maine, Questioning if there Chanterelles? [ If so are they toxic or have any toxic relatives, dont have to list em all if so yes or no would be alright ] Thank you, Greatly apreciated - Keith
  16. I've been out of a few times over the last 10 days in the Raleigh NC area since we've had some good rain over the last 2 weeks. I shared some of these via Facebook, but thought I'd share them here as well. The first trip was on the way to Western NC to visit the parents. I used the NOAA NWS historical precipitation to find a 3-4 inch of rain hot spot near Winston Salem, just off I-40. Found a spot called Salem Lake Park with long greenway around the Lake surrounded by a heavy hardwood forest. Found some bolates as well as my first chanterelles along a moss covered bank. Enjoyed in an omelete the next morning. First chanterelles. Small, but enough for a meal. After a trip to Boulder last week I was ready for hike this weekend. Unfortunately I was late on some of these, but gaining knowledge so I'll be ready next time the chicken and black staining polypore re-emerge. Found my first local Chanterelle. I could be wrong so did not eat these, but they were growing in a wash area, on the bank, moss and evergreen/oak forest. Although the yellow one had yet to break the veil, it's characteristics were just like the chanterelles found a week before. In hindsight it should have been left behind to mature. The orange ones were very small, but forked false gills. orange and yellow chanterelle old chicken. First chicken of the woods. Came close to this area a week before, but turned around just before this tree. Notes taken on date, so next year I'll be ready. young oysters. Found on down poplar. Lots are really small ones were left. Unfortunately I won't be able to go back to harvest. I took enough for a sauteed squash and oyster mushroom dish. Black staining polypore. IDed via Facebook. This had be stumped as it looked like maitake. I thought maybe an old chicken of woods, but Ben Ruben helped identify as meripilus sumstinei, black staining polypore, something new to me. Must have been at least 20 lb of mushrooms in 4-5 clusters around the base of old oak.
