    Up near the border this weekend stumbled on some boletes. I didn’t have my guide with me so once they turned colors on me I left them alone.

    Red-capped scaber stalk?

    I've just been getting into boletes the last couple years. Looking in my books I'd have to say you're right on with your assessment. Nice looking shroom!
    I would have left it too for that same reason. I know there are staining boletes that are very edible, but I'm not that seasoned with those yet. I probably would have tasted it though and spit it out just to see what it tasted like.

    I can't remember what the one on the left is... I see them all over growing directly out of wood. Next, definitely not oyster, some sort of lactarius is my guess. Either way, the two edible ones are a great find!

    Found a bunch of crown tip coral yesterday with my son. Unfortunately we could find him any chicken of the wood but we took what we could get. @tundraking any way you could post your mushroom soup recipe? I think i might have enough to make that and some eggs this morning. Lol 20200629_165954.jpg 20200629_175904.jpg 20200629_180526.jpg 20200629_181437.jpg

    I've found tons of this in past years and only eaten it a few times. Found it to be fibrous and not much for flavor. Think I'll harvest a bit this week just to give it another go round. Any cooking suggestions would be appreciated as long as not the obvious sautee methods I've tried. Thanks for sharing this and feeding my motivation. Happy hunting funguys and fungals!

    Anyone finding Chanterelles yet? They must be popping soon after all the rain these past few days and all this heat.

    Scaber stalks by my guess. I collect the hem and dehydrate them along with all my boletes. They ate yummy in pasta dishes, pretty slimy if you try and fry fresh. Enjoy!!

    Checked my good chanterelle spot today and found none but did get a few flowers off these chickens.

    Still very early but my buddy sent me this chanterelle picture on 6-30. He said there was 20+ chanterelles at the spot this size. His spot is definitely an early spot year-in-year-out, but it's pretty exciting all the same.

    Here's also nice white-pored chicken of the woods that I identified for another friend from a pic. He gave me half of it as a thank-you for the ID help and I made these fajitas-of-the-woods.

    Time for me to stop all this picture viewing and get out into them woods!

    I’m not much of a summer forager (except fishing!) but I came across this on a hike. ID help? I didn’t get too close because my walking buddy hates to brake for mushrooms ... but I’d go back!
