I got a new one in the works, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to enlarge it enough on this windows computer at work. On my MAC at home it's a snap.

I like the white mushrooms sold in the store. I prefer them over the Shitakes.

Yes, I know that are propagated in a steaming pile of horse hockey.

I would like to try the morels if I knew someone who know what to pick.

#59 1 year ago

Sadly, just like spring (or so it seems), mushroom season has come and gone.

Quoted from cottonm4:

Morels have a very distinct look. Here is a small patch of this years findings.

This is absolutely worth the time to watch it. It's also available wherever you listen to your podcasts.

Here are some of my first morels of the season. Have you guys found any yet this year?

Shroomin’ is the best....just make sure you are with the right crowd, or it can make for a long night!

#63 9 months ago

Headed into the woods in search of a honeybee swarm that was there last night. I think I shall get some mushroom while I'm out there.

Nice!

I was just thinking the time "feels" right to start looking. I always used to use Mother's Day as a time to start but the shrooms have been popping out earlier last couple years. I will probably venture out sometime this weekend.

#65 9 months ago

I pick alot of mushrooms actually, being born on a farm out in the woods kinda makes you a nature boi LOL

Mom taught me most of the good 'shrooms to pick and to cook, even a couple of the dangerous(but edible) ones. I still suck at doing that supergood morel sauce only she can get right, perfect for some oven cooked potatoes, salad and elkmeat.

Btw, are your morels poisonous like here in Sweden? here you have to cook them 3 times to get the poison out.

#66 9 months ago

Always just cook them once. I think they have hydrazine in a raw state.

Day 2: We had about 3.5 inches of rain since yesterday.

We have had several days in the 60s to 70s range and quite a bit of rain. I found a new spot this year which is always awesome.

I rinse mine and fry them either breaded or in olive oil and some butter. I ate several yesterday with no problems.

I've been eating specialty store bought and taking lion's mane capsules 2 times a day for 3 months now.
My Multiple sclerosis symptoms have almost reduced to nothing now, since I started on them.
Waiting on my next MRI in June's results.

After completely changing my diet to remove
Gluten, dairy, soy, legumes and all GMO foods. I improved about 60%. After starting on lion's mane I would say I'm at about 90%.

Mushrooms are amazing!!

Found another good patch today.

Finally had a chance to venture out today and locate a couple Morels. I believe the right ones are black morels and the left ones are white morels.

Found a couple areas that I will have to return to later in the week as the mushrooms are just popping up and need to grow a bit more. They were/are the size of the two at the upper left corner, I only took those because a small woodland creature knocked those over and they were loose on the ground.

Too many nooks and crannies for things to hide in. So eating would be out of the question.

Maybe you could bathe with them? Like a sea sponge with a built-in handle.

Really? Never been sick from them but make sure the stems are hollow. The ones with solid stems are the fake ones.

Here's what showed up today in eastern Iowa, just north of I-80. Mostly grays, a few yellows, all in one cluster. Weather's been miserable lately, rarely above 60, so I'm surprised they've popped already.

Morels and Chanterelles are our specialty in Northern Sask. But need about another 2 months before they come up. Chanterelles are big money up here and get shipped all over the globe

Quoted from vicjw66:

Who likes mushrooms?
Probably the same people who ate dirt as little kids. I'm guessing it's a subliminal nostalgic craving for things that taste like dirt.
So if you like to eat dirt then you probably like mushrooms.
Normal people think they are fucking disgusting.

I might be a year late seeing this, but now I can no longer take anything you say seriously. What a ludicrous statement. I f'ing HATE raw onions, but I don't need to act like a douche to people that like them.

#81 8 months ago

I have some log sections I was going to try to innoculate and place in the woods behind my house. I guess I'm a little too late. I thought you needed old logs?

Well, I certainly don't have to go far to pick the morels; they grow literally two feet from my front stoop. Last year I picked maybe 8 large ones, and left about 4 to stand until they melted away. Wasn't sure if picking them would discourage them from coming back again. This year I count only 5 small ones, but it is still early and very cool this spring. One was coming right out of the edge of the walkway. When they get bigger I'll take some pics.

Also get the amanita muscaria var. guessowii every year now about 20' away from the steps for about 7 years maybe. This fall there were at least 30 or 40. Only way I can think all these different schrooms came about is that the deer seem to hang out here every winter- maybe their dung has the spores?
Of course I never eat, or even touch these. They look great though. Something eats them, chunks are usually taken out of some after a few days.

Quoted from browbeeter:

I don't know if it really makes a difference, but I always leave about 30% of the mushrooms when I find them. If nothing else I feel better that they have a chance to spread spores the natural way. I will throw the ones I collect in an onion bag to allow any spores to fall out as I walk along. After rinsing the mushrooms before cooking I'll dump the water in strategic locations -- several areas have actually resulted in more growing the next year!

Pinside's "match up" or shopping function amuses me

This thread is about mushrooms. And that the bottom of the page is a listing for a Super Mario Bros. Mushroom World.

That is great news. Please keep us up to date. I am going to add Lion's Mane to my diet as it may prevent or delay Alzheimer's. My mother passed away last year after 3 years with that terrible disease.

We live on 7 acres with woods of many old white oaks and other trees. I am going to plug some logs and try to grow Lion's Mane. I have been foraging on our property for other mushrooms and enjoying Oysters, Chicken, and Hen of the Woods for years. We get a few morels and giant puffballs which are tasty as well. I have passed on the occasional psilocybin mushrooms that pop up but might give them a try in the future as I become more educated about them.
