Cactu and I went to camp in a large clearing. We almost set up camp right on the edge, but Cactu insisted that I drive 50 feet into the woods. We set up our tents and went to sleep. In the morning I heard voices - not just one or two, but hundreds. I went back to sleep. A couple hours later I got out of the tent and found that the army had deployed in the clearing. There were a couple hundred soldiers marching back and fourth. I got my camera and took a picture, but a guy with a machine gun immediately came over and made me delete it.


I went mushroom hunting for a couple hours, and when I got back there were 20 soldiers in my campsite. Cactu had a fire going and was cooking mushrooms. We spent a couple hours teaching them which mushrooms were edible. They gave us some army food (carnitas tacos) and we gave them some cooked mushrooms.


This picture was taken in the middle of 20 soldiers. They wouldn't let me point the camera at them so I put some KOH on this mushroom and took this pic:

Great!!!

How long do the Morels fruit down there? I was surprised to see one, but I know nothing about mushrooms from that area so maybe I shouldn't be surprised?

your welcome
I love the work you do
and never get tired looking at your mushroom pictures They are all so cool having a hard time picking my favorite one :) Some of your mushroom pictures are the best I have ever seen but the microscopic pictures are my fav I think ... mine suck but I am trying sooner or later I will have the right tools and can try to make pictures like that
I think it was great showing the soldiers what to eat :) Sharing is cool .... they do not really like their pictures taken around here either :)

Morels fruit at high elevation in ravines at the end of the mushroom season, after just about everything else has finished. They fruit October - December, depending on if they get rain. Rain gets spotty at the end of the season. It's a time of the year where no one else in the world is getting fresh morels, so someone could perhaps start a business selling them to chefs in the winter when the prices are high.

We need more of the wild food collecting
helping some people work and providing food
at a time there is none of that kind could be a great idea
teaching to collect in a way that is sustainable is important :)
for years of work opportunity I am sure they can collect
more than one thing too planned out right

They are very good.



You fry them in butter or oil, and cook them well because some of the members of Amanita section Validae are toxic raw.


Well, toxic raw, That is something I would not eat then, Just too risky for me, Kinda seems like the blow fish deal, If you accidentally cook it wrong, then you can die!

I'll stick with sauteed Portabella mushrooms in a little garlic, little salt, little butter, little onion, little soy sauce, little brown sugar, dash of worcestershire sauce, little time and love and a fat med well= Ribeye over a wood grill of aged oak and hickory, on a Nice breezy & cool summer evening, the sun setting on the lake, beautiful woman eating naked with in your lap, then after dinner, a nice glass of red wine, a roofie for the lady and 1.0 grams of Panaeolus Cyanescens for me, god knows it's better if she doesn't recall me mounting her like a bull elephant in heat, musk dripping down behind my ears and a 4 foot dick, she is better off..........................:smokin: Just kidding.......................niitowijoasdfasdf

I think a few mushrooms are toxic raw
I think shaggy manes need to be cooked my friend told me to always cook them
I still do not have the want to eat them at this moment but I have dried them
I trust Alan and Warriorsouls info and Id skills but this an eat at your own risk kind of mushroom :)
and they both have made this clear If I eat it and get sick I was warned and with Aminitas there is no fooling around you must know and trust your stuff
If I cooked them up raight away I am not confident enough to do it at this time is just asking for a night of am I going to die which is not pleasant
If or when I do eat them I will let you know I will store them away until I decide some chemicals disappear with cooking
Id probably be worse off with the roofie they are not pleasant either

Damn Alan you should have started your own thread. :lol:

I think its best to cook all edible mushrooms to avoid any possible gastric disturbances.

Shaggy Manes must never be eaten with alcoholic beverages, the combination can cause some funky feelings.

If you don't feel comfortable eating a wild picked mushroom then do not eat it. Nothing is wrong with that, that is actually very smart. But if you ever get the chance to eat Amanita jacksonii then do that for sure, just make sure the ID is 100% because some folks mistake them for muscaria types. Amanita jacksonii is my favorite edible mushroom, I love them so much, YUM.

I am hoping to maybe get some dried Amanita velosa from a mycologist from the PNW, she said she would mail me some to try since she knows how much I love Amanita mushrooms for the table. Also Alan has said they're better than A. jacksonii so I would like to see. Amanita rubescens is also very good. But I do not think people should hunt Amanita mushrooms for the table unless hunting with someone that knows without a doubt what they're doing. I am not saying you're clueless Wilde, just being safe.

Scroll down on this page and read about Shaggy Manes and alcoholic beverages, its in the 5th paragraph I think.

I seen a rubescents b4 but it was covered in bugs too holy and half biodegraded
I think i also seen a jacksonii ( are they yellow orange gills? )
and I waited till the winter to eat the A. muscaria I found in the fall last year I really liked these mushrooms :) except the pale one I tried I couldnt get over how white it looked it was yellow but pale it kinda freaked me out but the really yellow ones were good :)
I think I started studying these to look for the deadly ones first and avoid eating them at least I know what they look like :)
I still cant get over how I feel when taking pictures of these finding them and looking closely I swear there are chemicals evaporating off of them that I could be smelling in
Allan did set up his own thread but I really like to see his pictures I am really happy he put them in my thread :) inspiration to strive for :) cant wait to take microscopy pictures even close to his pictures :)
I think Amanita are one of my favorite mushrooms

I think shaggy manes are ok with alcohol.

I don't think eating Amanitas is any more dangerous than eating any other wild mushroom. One guy thought he was picking shaggy mane and he actually ate Amanita bisporigera. I don't know of anyone who has been poisoned by Amanitas except for people who didn't know that they were eating an Amanita.

I am not sure if A. velosa is good dried, that would be interesting to try though. See if it tastes like scallops...

Maybe for you shaggy manes are OK with alcohol, but for some people they're not, best take the side of caution on this one I think.

you're correct, WS. I was just reading up on shaggy manes and from what I read coprine has not been found in Coprinus comatus.

My friends who taught me to eat shaggy manes I asked them about alcohol with them
They said they have heard of that but they think it was other mushrooms they would never eat anyway, they only eat shaggy manes and havent had any issues they are drinkers too I am sure they have drank after a meal of shaggy manes no ill effects

I usually dry all the mushrooms I find they are easier to preserve and my organization skills are improving this year

With Amanitas I find they will tell me when it is right to eat them I will get an urge that I really want them ..... I am waiting for a meal that the kids are not around for they have told me they do not want to eat any wild mushrooms I find .... I have got them to try shaggy manes tho they liked them that took me and my friend to tell them they are ok

If I remember right there are only a couple of deadly Amanitas here there are more LBM and Little white mushrooms that need to be worried about Inocybe is one...

Amanita flavoconia
Here is a couple of babies so cute and colorful :) and a larger more mature one found 3 :)
IMG_4321.JPG
Here is the bulb on the older one :) see the yellow on the stem this can get lost in the soil too when you dig it up one indicator that this is A. flavoconia :)
IMG_4327.JPG
The bulb shape on this one is slightly different tho ?

Here is the gills and the veil skirt stuck to a leaf it tore when I took the leaf off I wounder how veils get lost :)....
IMG_4333.JPG
and this was before I popped it out of the ground
IMG_4323.JPG
These mushrooms are very interesting to me I always notice the roots of plants and trees are growing very close to these mushroom bulbs you either have to fight with the roots to dig them out
... or you have to go beside the root and pop them up from below the bulb :) a stick or a pen works well :) even a finger sometimes if you can get it in there

oops the picture in the box below is not flavoconia sorry it is Amanita muscaria guessowii


I have grown fond of these mushrooms they are very medicinal for me

Amanita flavoconia humm is helping me threw some past sexual abuse I am having trouble trying to explain it tho there is something that evaporates from this mushroom a sent that can be picked up when I am walking threw the woods I can smell it and it makes me feel different childish in a way like I am in a story book.

It is really weird and hard to put feelings into words it is very much like a high this way hummm medicinal it dosnt take total control out of me I can do what needs to be done in a day
its a feeling like antidepressants not easy to put into words I feel great not neegative and I can see the problems that are hiding it is my choice to act on them or wait it out and ignore it if I wish

but I come and sit with these mushrooms and asked to take thier medicine home for me I make a deal as you would say with these mushrooms not to waste thier medicine so that helps me to stik to it

with anything you have to want to ......
