    Except oysters! They have deep gills. They're distinguishing factor is they have a light smell of black licorice. (It does not carry through when cooked, in case you're not a fan of that smell).:)

    Field guide is really a must when starting out. Just check out amazon or maybe a local bookstore. If you want a recommendation, just let us know. We can point you to a couple of the common ones for the midwest.

    Right on tundra, though it's a bit late for oysters, and I haven't considered them True cap and stem shrooms.

    Went out for a few hours on Saturday, and didn’t get as many as last week, but I’m not complaining. I seriously now have eight 6L bags full of dehydrated boletes. I’m giving half away, but man, I can’t believe this season!

    As you can see, my kid is NOT impressed with having to process MORE boletes.

    unidentified mushroom.jpg July 27th the state of Minnesota hosted a mushroom walk with state ecologist Chris. I learned that it is illegal to remove mushrooms from a SNA(scientific natural area), however you are free to enter SNA's and look at all the mushrooms and even pick them and examine them. One mushroom? that we found we were not able to identify. It was growing on possibly a decayed cotton wood. The specimen was almost paper thin, dark red/brown. Under a jewelers hook I was not able to make out pores but I am sure they were there. It is possible that this was a type of slime mold but I haven't seen a slime mold this big that was not the white variety. Location 44.244, -93.518

    It looks like jelly ear or wood ear fungus to me. Auricularia americana.
