Stopped in at my Uncles woods tonight on the way home to check one of my spots where I have found some chantererelles the past few years. Only needed to walk into the woods about 30 yards and the woods was orange. They were all around a large beech tree, same tree as years before. I only picked enough to fill my hat, many more there. Now it is time to saute some with scrambled eggs. Anyone else enjoy these fine morsels?

Haven't had any in years, but used to pick them in the Olympic rain forest (WA) at my relatives place. Best shrooms ever. :D

I remember riding out early mornings into the horse pasture in the summer time and seeing where those mushrooms grow. Never cared to try any since.

I wish I knew which mushrooms were safe to eat vs those that aren't. I'd need someone to take me afield & teach me. Internet pics & books just haven't been the best way to "try it."

Don't know about the variety in Ohio, but the ones in WA that I grew up with grow on the north side ground of the big Douglas Firs and are a somewhat lighter shade of orange than those in the OP image. You don't actually pick them but cut them with a preferably sterilized very sharp knife about 1/2 way down the stem, and only harvest about 1/2 of them from the patch in order for it to keep producing. They have a wonderful flavor and can be eaten raw in salads and such.

But as you noted, you have to know very specifically what you are harvesting since there are similar looking fungi that are definitely not good for your health.

Here's some ID info> https://www.mushroom-appreciation.com/c ... rooms.html

Yep, I have been picking and eating them since age 3! I fix them as you do. Sometimes in an omelet. Like you I picked a small plastic bag full. I have two days left before I will need to find more. Scrumptious. Ty, I would be honored to help you learn mushrooms. A great way to accessorize your wild game too.

Haven't had any since moving to Iowa from Oregon nine years ago, but I have several places on the farm that produce more oyster mushrooms than I can eat every year, as well as morels which are far more scarce.

Nothing like nature's bounty! :D

I have to say I've never seen them before in Ohio.
I've picked morels for years.

If you find the right woods the ground will be orange, they are much easier to find than the morels. :D
I was cutting some firewood several years ago on the farm where I deer hunt and was on my way out with a load and looked over in the woods and could see mushrooms everywhere. Need to go back and check that spot. Stopped tonight again and picked a few for some coworkers that want to try them.
