heading back out Tuesday for boletus, hens, and anything else I can find....anybody ever try chicken-fat-sulius (sp?) little yellow bolete like discs that don't stain when crushed? grow around white pines....like chewy chicken fat when cooked, I think they're nasty but chefs like them, they are out now, have been for a while, warning If u pick them they might drip like milkies (even though they are in the bolete family) and stain your hands for a day or two
