Description:

Moved into a new spot and look who my neighbors are!
Armillaria Mellea (assumed, could be Tabescens), parasitic on deciduous hard wood,
found in a neighborhood of mostly older folks.. the trees and people and houses
are all very old and often windstorms will leave wood scattered everwhere down the whole street
they pop up in yards shoot across at least 15+ of moderate-sized houses in dense clusters
ive found them other places around town, but never so widespread like this! the largest is the species Armillaria solidipes, stretching a couple miles through a mountain range in Oregon, so i shouldnt be surprised.
Hopefully i can get some pictures in the fall of them going wild..


I took these picture some time ago now, and i never bothered to check the gills,
i had plans to eat them and maybe even dehydrate a ton of them,
but i kinda didnt want to mess with getting sick (no diarrhea pls thanx)
Ive gotten more and more curious to try them.. so im gonna give it a go once they pop up again.

Has anyone tried them, would you compare them to button mushrooms, or are they something special?

p.s. i love my stump. hes a good stumpy (the tree in the picture is a stump about 4-5 feet tall.. he has been asking for some shiitake dowels..

First mycologist I've ever encountered who hasn't eaten honey mushrooms. Life is full of firsts.

 

At the moment, I'm studying economics.

Delicious

 

One of my favs honestly

 

Strip the stem, take the pith out of the stem and sautee it- with butter (/andgarlic)- delicious.

With honey mushrooms, you typically only eat the cap... They are kinda like Shitake
