I am here to announce the first successfull musroom hunt. I brought a bunch home, bought three atlases, identified the buggers, cooked some, dried others.

Here's where it all happened. In Heartbreak Reservation, near Saugus:

Some of the mushroom species encountered. This I think is a small red birch boletus:

And this beauty here is the Sticky Bun, which makes for a very tasty omelette:

And the day's harvest:

We call them hawks feather mushrooms because the skin peels and curls up slightly into little brown curves

Yep, parasols.

We call them bede jedle in Slovakia. They grow both here and back at home. They grow in plentitudes on wet meadows, and make for a perfect meal : we bread them in flour, egg and bread crumbs and deep fry them, served with french fries and tartar sauce.... very heavy.

you can also bake them in the oven with white wine and rosemary, or put them on a pan, marinated with olive oil and vinegar and spices and salted (salt must come only after a while of cooking though)

they are awesome. one of my favorites, after the King Boletus.

actually, looking at the pinkish coloring of the gills, i think they are champignons rather than parasols... but those two are very close. very juicy, champignons are.

Very clever of you, dag, knowing which ones you can eat & which will actually kill you. Me, I only ever picked boring old field mushrooms. (I had been warned as a child!)

Loved the photographs of you & k on your hunt! Women on a serious mission! Very Happy

The gills are really quite white/cream. Its a trick of the light that makes them look pink in the photo.

I'm doing a spore print.

you might be right, dadpad. one ukrainian woman died here recently of musroom poisoning, picking mushrooms that looked like the edible mushrooms in Ukraine.

spore print is a good start

Parasol mushroom.

It seems the difference between parasols and mine is the stem thickness and spore colour. Parasols have a slender stem this one is quite thick. Parasols have white spore prints this one (supposedly) has a greenish tint.

According to the sites I'm looking at you wouldn't be the first person to confuse the two. More cases of poisoning from this mushroom than any other although rarely fatal. Gastro like symptoms.

well, i didn't confuse it quite yet. i'd have to see it and i would do a spore print, too. i was merely guessing. i don't pick just any mushrooms i happen by. only when i'm 100% sure what they are.

Well you knew more than me.
I had no idea till you gave an opinion and I just followed the trail from there.

And and and and..... she EATS them!

We have been thoroughly trained, as americans, to NOT eat wild mushrooms. Turns out that most are quite edible, if only a few tastes really nicely.
