Central OH - Franklin County

A morning trip into Chanterelle Heaven today and I returned with these below. They were fresh from the woods, and clean enough for me to just put them in a paper grocery bag, cover with another paper grocery bag and into the refrigerator.

I brought enough home for two dinners.

I've never eaten them, but I see/read online that many do. Anyone here eaten these?

Hocking County OH

Chanterelles again today, Sunday, in Hocking county. They have had sufficient moisture to get to their largest size for these -- fist sized ones that call out to you from long distances in the woods.

This is a beautiful Bay Bolete. I did the tongue test - not a Bitter Bolete like the one at the spring Thursday, post # 40, above - also sitting on moss. It was the only one up to that point and so I didn't take it home with me. I have only one woods where I can find lots of these Bay Boletes at the same time.

I took the opportunity to cruise past some cliffs where, during Morel Season, I lodged a nice Buck Deer 8 point rack and skull -- not wanting to trapse around in the woods with it. (pic from April just below)

Well!! I'll be! It was still there in the crevice in the cliff and I placed a 'shroom beside it before taking this pic below, today.

The Chanterelle season is getting long, but still going. Hocking is, in the spring, 5 days or so ahead of Central OH.

Adventures await, in the woods. 馃槑 馃尀

Chanterelles and Sweet Potatoes compliment each other (to my taste).
