Called Combtooth, or some such. Should be available soon, pretty sure we usually start to find by mid-August, and go into October. Find them on old dead poplar usually......

Mild woodsy/nutty flavor.....very enjoyable.

Any poisonous lookalikes to avoid?

Not that I know of. I have a very concise mushroom book (for my own protection), and it doesn't show anything. Around here, there is nothing else that resembles them.

If any deer show up with missing faces, we'll know why.

^ Lol, I've seen them out there, I need to brush up on my shrooms, my mushum always knew which to eat and this was a method I remember him saying, not in these exact words it was along time ago but here's the just of it, if in doubt peel it from the edge to the center if it peels all the way it's safe if it breaks no good.

I value my life too much to pick and eat wild mushrooms.

We grew up eating a lot of wild mushrooms. Its one of the things I miss most about late spring / early summer is picking wild mushrooms out of the pastures.

In the guide linked to earlier, they identify as "meadow mushrooms."

Awsome, my grandma used to say something to that effect as well, she would always pick and cook us wild mushrooms to go with dinner...

If you know your mushrooms some of the best eating there is if you don't its your last meal so be very careful and only eat what you know is safe.

There's really no hard and fast rule for edible or poison mushrooms, other than proper and accurate species identification. (Other than the old rule: all mushrooms are edible.......once)

And, incidently, was out this weekend and picked a good feed of these combtooths, cooked 'em up last night!

Went out in the bush for a walk and found 2 clusters of the combtooth. Found 2 large meadow mushrooms as well. I ate the meadow and the misses ate the combtooth. Thanks Dmay!

What is the book you use Dmay? Would be interested in getting one. Mushrooms are really common in my neck of the woods, would be nice to know which are edible.

The book I use is The Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms.
I eat the mushrooms that I know are safe. Nothing like harvesting some morels, meadow mushrooms and Young inkies to make a meal of mushrooms.

can't say the thought of eating fungus has ever appealed to me. i pick mushrooms off of or out of any food i find them in. lol

that said, i like the idea of knowing which plants are edible and which aren't. i usually carry some kind of wild food identification book, most recently the SAS Survival Guide, in my pack when I'm in the woods.

Out hunting and brought home 6 bags of different mushrooms. Only one that was edible was the eastern cauliflower mushroom. That sucker was 3 feet long and 16 inches wide. Nice flavor cooked in butter. Only brought a chunk the size of a cabbage home.

Still searching for the morels and chanterelles.
One foot note is a mushroom that was very slimy called destroying angle and the slime, absorbed through the skin can cause nausea and diarrhea. I take the book with me now. Instead of bringing the shroom home. That slime is very hard to get off out in the bush.
Get the book on berries too. Incredible how many sweet tasting berries are right in front of us. Very sweet just don't chew the seeds because they have arsenic in them.

I'll never eat any kind of mushroom.

I've probably turned around dozens of restaurant meals that I ordered and had delivered with mushrooms even though it wasn't listed as an ingredient on the menu.

My favourite is the old "you can just pick them off the pizza". Um, no thanks, now that they've contaminated the rest of it with their stinky fungus juice.

There's some Shaggy Manes growing in my driveway right now...I know I can eat them, nothing else looks like them...I've had them before (not the best, Inky Caps are better, IMO, I use lots of garlic)...this thread makes me want to fry them up...but I don't want to miss Thanksgiving, I'm not sure how long afterwards you can't drink alcohol?

Anybody trying to grow them? My parents, as another one of their zany retirement hobbies, are attempting to farm them in a patch of low lying forest behind the house. You can pick up wood plugs with spore colonies from Lee Valley. Drill holes into logs of various wood types (dependant on the type of shroom) and either lay half buried in the ground or stick in upright like a post (again dependant on shroom type). Keep moist, takes two summers to get results. We are currently patiently awaiting results. Hopefully next year we get some nice oysters and whatever the other type they planted is.
