Starting To Find More Mushrooms

A trip into the forest showed some new varieties of mushrooms this time.

Lobster mushroom.This was the first lobster mushroom of the season, it was firm and delicious. They do have a hint of a seafood flavor.

The lobster mushrooms are very delicate and they will ‘melt’ when they get rained on so it is not always possible to find good ones to harvest.

Cauliflower mushroom next to my hat.Mike spotted a cauliflower mushroom as he started down the hillside. In order to see the size, I threw my hat into the picture.

This one is really small compared to ones we usually harvest so we left it to grow for another week.

Cauliflowers are a specialty that are used in Asian cooking after soaking in a light salt brine and slicing into thin strips.

The Chanterelles are still not profuse yet, barring any killing frosts, they should be coming up by the bucketful.
