wild mushrooms.


mushrooms are one of my absolute favorite foods

and it’s soon time for the elusive morels to appear

luckily i have this handy chart to help.

no time to write more

i’m off to find a sasquatch den.

“on the subject of wild mushrooms, it is easy to tell who is an expert and who is not:

the expert is the one who is still alive.”

  1. happy hunting, Beth 🙂 you know, I’ve never liked mushrooms though I don’t mind them on pizza; did you know golden staph bacilli under a strong microscope look like mauve mushrooms? this may appear in my golden staph poem I’m posting tomorrow —

  2. Hahahahaha! That chart is perfect! Guess I shall continue buying mine in the store. I would love to go foraging for ‘shrooms, but only with one who is certified and knows which ones won’t kill me.

  3. Beth, my Mom would harvest wild chanterelles on Washington state’s very wild Olympic Peninsula…as she was the Emergency Medical Technician for a large area over there, she routinely had to help with those who picked the wrong – and poisonous – mushroom…harvesting wild mushrooms is a joy and an art!

  4. what I love is simply fried mushies with just a touch of salt, and maybe some herbs with it. Were invited, some time ago, by friends with whom we stayed (a paid bnb which has become like a 2nd, 3rd or 4th home-from-home) to freshly market-bought mushrooms and beautiful linguine from the Italian shop…. so remarkable, so simple, so perfect.
    I often buy a bunch of whatever is fresh and grill them for my lunch. A heavenly simplicity.
    I love that chart! Shall copy it and keep it – so very helpful!
