Default Anyone into 'shrooms??

I joined the local mycological club and hope to learn to not die eating wild mushrooms. I was given a Hen of the Woods years ago by an acquaintance and cooked it with wine and grouse breasts and told myself, "I'm gonna do that someday." So hopefully virus notwithstanding I'm going to learn this year. I don't trust me and a book on this one!

A worthy endeavor for sure. My success rate finding morels in the spring is not good.

The only thing I have going for me is stamina to walk and keep looking so I hope that helps.

Doesn't get much better than chanterelles in the lowcountry. Picked these while waiting on a deer at Cheeha Combahee.

Wow. Those look great! I love cooking. So if I can shoot a grouse with a Parker and cook it with mushrooms I pick I’m going to pretty much buy everyone a drink on this forum.

Try the Chanterelle mushroom soup recipe on the Hanks Shaw Hunter-Angler-Gardener-Cook website. It is fantastic.
Love a good summer rainy day, because I will be in the woods gathering chanterelles the next day.

One of my favorite wild game chefs. His stuff is consistently good, but a little to Mexican heavy for my tastes. Only about one out of ten of his email recipes are not Mexican influenced. His books are awesome. I really hope I can learn something because I can think of nothing better than marrying what you pick with what you shoot or catch.

Andy, I love wild shrooms too. Been picking morels for years. Recently just got some chanterells on the gamelands. I have found "spongies" (boletes) here too. I keep my eyes open for hen of the woods but haven't run across them. We do have "popenkes" (honey mushrooms) which are very very good too. Nothing like venison stroganoff with morels!! If you have any info on the myco club near you let me know. I always prefer hands on ID from experienced mycologists over comparing pics in a book.
