About a year ago, I was exploring the forest just before winter. Weather was so nice, not too hot. Today I remembered those pics while I was eating my shiitake soup. I love mushrooms but no clue how to ID wild ones. Do you ?





I'm sure nobody in that area has interest in this kind of things, I also found some medicinal plants (lost that photo) in this place and nobody harvest them.





Gotta love that vivid color on that one, no clue if edible but certainly beautiful. Could it be a sort of flower and not a mushroom ?

Last one is called 'Yum Yum Forever Nap'.

Go see my buddy Dan at the Foraged Feast at the Montclair Farmer's Market, they teach classes on how to forage in New Jersey. He can help you locate mushrooms, herbs and Hackensack River rat.

You just added a good one to my bucket list. Any idea how "mush" those classes cost ?

If I recall they were like $30-40 dollars but it pays for itself in being able to find so many things that are edible that you typically walk right past. I'm often in South Mountain Reservation foraging for edibles.

A location would be a major insight into what they are. Mushrooms are so varied and often relegated to specifics areas and climates.

I was big into mycology for a number of years, however, I was more focused on psilocybin cubensis than anything. It’s amazing how something that grows in nature so well requires such stringent conditions to thrive in a man-made setting.

I'm pretty sure that isn't Chicken/Hen of the Woods in the last pic.

MMMM! River Rat Marsala with Amanita mushrooms...a memorable meal.

There are too many stories of mushroom experts ending up sick or dead, so I stick to the supermarket variety. Boring but without drama.

No, I didn't want to damage them but I could take a sample though. Just didn't think about it.

Be careful with wild Mushrooms pal, some of the most poisonous substances in the world are fungal related, and without a cure.

Okay, I'm no expert. The link does give information on how to identify species. Just though it may be helpful.

There's a few near me that I'm comfortable picking but for the most part I just go to the farmer's market.

Yeah, that's why when in doubt, don't eat it.

Don't get used to it, I'm usually only good for moronic comments.

If I can't identify them, I don't touch them.
I am only good at finding morels but still know what false ones look like.
Morels only have about a 2 week window to grow.

A small bag of dried morels goes for 30 bucks here.
Other than that, I have 2 cans of mushrooms in my cupboards.
