Not a fabulous season thus far for Hen-of-the-woods, but I am hopeful for more in my usual spots in the next few weeks with the cooler and wetter weather on the way. There are plenty of Suillus americanus out there, and they are fabulous-tasting, but they are a bit of work to peel...I think they ARE worth the time!! I am hoping for some Steinpilz soon too...It has been a while since I last found a 3- pounder and five 1-pounders...what a rush!! Guess I have to travel to higher altitudes to get a bunch of 'em... Happy HUNTING!
