Chicken

Postby fisherdee » Sep Tue 27, 2016 6:59 am

I am not much of a mushroom guy, love to eat them but I usually don't hunt anything I cant shoot! While I was at Monroe last week I did find a Chicken of the Woods while walking my dog Zakk. In the low light it stood out as it was easy to see from the camp road. On side of old oak tree, I harvested it.

Put it on ice and fixed it up when I got home. Sauteed with butter, olive oil, onions, garlic and red wine. Served on top of Tuscan seasoned pork tenderloin with candied sweet potatoes.

Texture was meaty and it absorbed the flavors of what it was seasoned with.

There were so many mushrooms popping up everywhere, we got a book to identify. The book brought about as many questions as it answered. We did not eat others as still not sure of their identity.

The bottom phot is oophalotus olearius or olivescens...make you pretty sick.

If you post good photos that show a mushrooms entire structure I can ID them for you

In the photo w the canteen those are russula, lactarius and ramaria clade mushrooms, tough to narrow down species without better photos.
You never see a fishing boat parked in front of a psychiatrists office .....
