    It looks like our previous Summer page was deleted along with all the spam. So lets try this again...
    How's everybody doing out there?! I haven't had a chance to even get out lately, but with all of the recent rain there has to be some action going on. Who's been finding what?

    Hay tundra any way you could post that recipe for your crown tip mushroom soup. I tried them for the first time last weekend and i think im hooked. Havent been able to find much for chickens this year but i have been finding plenty of crowntipped corals

    No problem May Motherload! Its always nice to see when things are getting started out there and more eyes the better.

    jg, they are pretty darn good! I love the woody taste.
    As for the soup, I go by taste, but should really write it down. Basically, its 3 cups chicken or veggie broth, 1 TBSP fish sauce, 1 TBSP soy sauce, 1 TBSP garlic chili sauce (I use the "Huy Fong" brand found in the ethnic isle at the grocer), a little rice wine vinegar, and a couple diced green onions, bring to a hard simmer for a couple minutes, then drop in your crown tip coral mushrooms, maybe a cup or so. They cook fast obviously so bring it back to a simmer for a minute, then shut off the stove and let the soup sit for 5-10 minutes to let the flavors meld before serving. Other than that, adjust everything based on the amount of mushrooms you have or want to cook. Let me know what you think!

    The site had a spam attack and it looks like they deleted the most recent threads along with the spam.
    Here’s my guess on your mystery mushroom...

Everything looks behind, even the masses of other shrooms. Probably another week or two before my spots really start paying off.
    Almost ran into a paper nest... I’m lucky I looked down because they built this thing just 2 feet off the ground on the smallest piece of brush they could find...
