I think most mushrooms, particularly morels benefit by drying first, then rehydrating! Concentrates flavors and improves texture.

I've dried plenty of shrooms but never rehydrated them to eat. I'll give it a try with some hens this afternoon. I pickle a bunch of them and when I eat them fresh it's normally sautéed with evoo, garlic, chili pepper, and some cherry tomatoes. I freeze some too and cook them like that too.

We have lift off for summer mushrooms here, if only bitter beech boletes were edible I could have picked about 5kg today. Did get a scarlatina bolete and last week the first chanterelles of the season, only a few but nice to see them pop up. Also got a couple of charcoal burners

Jack, my dad once grabbed a maitake that was as big as a 5 foot round table!   But I think it was several plants.....they really are good shrooms...hearty, tasty....great for pickling.  Nice job

I bought some new hiking boots and decided to wear them in today with a long flat walk., small haul of oyster, chantarelle, couple of orange birch boletes and a charcoal burner. There were quite a few of these around but this was the only one worth picking.

You have put up so many great looking photos on this thread! Makes me hungry and envious.


I’ve only had fresh porcini mushrooms a couple times. Incredible. Even using the dried ones makes just about anything better. I would think seriously about kissing somebody’s a$$ on the courthouse steps and giving them an hour to draw a crowd if they could show me where to find fresh porcinis within a few miles of my house!

They are really nice, especially when found in good condition. Unfortunately slugs and maggots like them as much as we do. I found a couple today that were far too far gone to pick. Not much else around apart from a lot of amanitas which I don't pick as there are plenty of very poisonous ones. We have had a lot of rain just now so hopefully next week will be noticeably better.

Although my usual chantarelle patch came up trumps, also a solitary orange birch bolete.

I'm a member of the Piedmont Mycological Society here in North Carolina. We go out in the Fall to forage, usually after a rain.

Chanterelles are everywhere in the woods by my house. The past few weekends I've picked so many that I started taking them to the Farmer's Market to trade for produce. I took almost 20 pounds last weekend and about 7 this weekend because I got tired of picking them. Found some oysters too.

It's that time of year here when the ceps are making an appearance, also seen a few other boletes but no chanterelles yet....anyone else collecting mushrooms?  I picked these today in a couple of patches, rather pleased with the haul. I realised I need a dehydrator but can't find any sore that sells one, guess I'll have to buy online

Hello,

Found this big Field/Horse mushroom the other week. Biggest I`ve ever picked. My size 11 on right.. Made a nice mushroom Pilau rice dish with it.
Your bounty is something else!

Anyone know where to source fresh porcini/cep mushrooms in southern california?  I've been to a few mushroom vendors at farmer's markets and they all say "nope".  I've seen them for sale once by the vendor located in the San Francisco ferry building.

 I'd get a couple of UK field guides ( I have the river cottage, Collins and carluccio ones) also the likes of Galloway wild foods website and wildfooduk are good they have a load of YouTube clips too. Another is first nature.

I've got a few free apps on my phone too but they tend to just copy Wikipedia and aren't as useful as they could be


I've picked quite a few kilos of orange birch boletes and scarlatina boletes over the last couple of weeks. Penny buns should be making an appearance in decent numbers soon too now.
