I decided to take a quick look this morning at the Enchanted Mushroom Forest to see if anything had started happening after the rain. The short answer is that there were a few tasty edibles around and the forest was good and wet. I found enough hedgehog mushrooms and lobster mushrooms for a couple dinners.
The hedgehogs are unusual in that they have teeth instead of gills or pores under the cap. They’re firm and tasty. Keep in mind though, that I don’t recommend eating any wild mushrooms….if you go and poison yourself because you mis-identify something, remember I warned you.
Look at the intense colour on this Hypomyces lactifluorum (lobster mushoom)!
Thanks, I was looking to identify one of these (Lobster) mushrooms. Now I know it’s safe to eat. My first, yippy!
Please be very careful in identifying any mushroom you plan to eat. Lobster mushrooms are distinctive, but please be sure.
