Mushrooms

Went hunting for chanterelles today and they were blooming in full swing, too bad it rained right before I got there, I probably picked 1percent of what was out there just to get clean ones:

    I admit I don't know my shrooms. That's a little pricey like truffels.

    Is there a guide book or something for identifying edible good mushrooms in different regions of the country and state

    I measured 6 pounds, not bad for 45 minutes of bending over. I've got a lady from a local bed and breakfast coming tomorrow to try out some. I may be in business soon. There were thousands of them but I only had so much room in my basket. And Chanterelles with butter and a touch of salt and pepper is food fit for a king. How much do you think I should ask for them? I was thinking $20 per pound is reasonable.

    Love Shrooms with melted butter... some onions in Marsalla wine. OMG.. With a MR steak. I'd love to try wild shrooms but i'd most likely poison my self..

    I found some King Boleets last year at my Cabin that were as big as a Dinner Plate.
    Huge things, Scared to eat them.

    Some will use truffles as a comparison to chanterelle's, they're that good.

    When I lived in PA there used to be a mushroom that grew on the sides of trees, way up, that when cooked with a sausage hoagie was out of this world.

    Neophites need to be careful on picking shrooms....

    Get the wrong ones and you can get sick or worse... You might see visions you cannot erase.

    With my luck I'd just get a good puker. Oh wait, the purple shroom guys always told me that was a good sign that you had the real McCoy. :grin

    Seriously, I don't mess with them, I'd end up picking toadstools.

    Nice haul, I collect a few #'s every year.
    I find them "rich" and overpowering, so I eat them in moderation.
    I dehydrate them and place in the freezer for use down the road.

    National Audubon makes some pretty good mushroom field guides.
